StatisticsBook - 2010
Modern statistics is very different from the dry and dusty discipline of the popular imagination. Author David J. Hand reveals it to be an exciting subject that uses deep theory and powerful software tools to shed light on all aspects of our lives--enabling astronomers to explore the origins of the universe, archaeologists to investigate ancient civilizations, governments to learn how to benefit society, and businesses to run efficiently. Hand clearly explains how statistics work, and how we can decipher them.
