Abstract:

You can be informed by statistics or fooled by them, but you can't escape them - not in today's society. Here's your chance to learn what they mean. How to Think about Statistics is a common-sense introduction to the logic behind statistical analysis and problem solving. Instead of focusing on numerical computations, it emphasizes the thinking behind the numbers and shows you how statistics are applied in such fields as psychology, education, politics, sociology, and social work. -- from back cover.
