This book has really opened my mind to the true meanings and practical uses of statistics.Not like any textbook on statistics,most of it is quite easily read by anyone who has studied the general concepts of statistics before.however some terms may seem a little bit complicated,but at the end you will find yourself thinking differently about statistics in your daily life,and you can use this book as reference in the future.
