From the Publisher"The volume's writing style is very engaging, easy to read, welcoming, friendly, and appropriately informal. Students will find the volume inviting and encouraging because it makes them feel they can do what is being presented."
"The emphasis on the "inspection" phase of data analysis is truly commendable. This is a topic I have never seen covered in an introductory text. It is important both because it is practically useful, but also because it assists students in "getting to know their data." In most texts, students move so quickly past this phase that the numbers upon which they base their computations and eventual conclusions are mere abstractions."
"The approach is "cutting edge" and fills a gap not provided by any introductory level statistics text that I know of. . . . The emphasis is on the application of statistical procedures, rather than the theoretical underpinnings of the statistics, and that is what I want for my students. It is a text that I would readily adopt."
