Statistics, first published in 1978, set a new standard for introductory books. The third edition improves the exposition at crucial places. Many of the data sets are new, and there are 200 new exercises that deal with many studies of current interest. The topics and order of presentation remain the same, as does the flavor of the text.
Statistics is written in clear, everyday language, without the equations that baffle non-mathematical readers. The goal is teaching students how to think about statistical issues. Techniques are introduced through examples showing how statistics has helped solve major problems in education, genetics, medicine, physics, political science, psychology, and other fields.
