The data analysis approach pioneered by David Moore was first introduced in this groundbreaking brief text for liberal arts students. By emphasizing concepts and applications to a wide range of fields (as opposed to formulas and computation) the text has become an influential bestseller, and its emphasis on ideas and data is now generally acknowledged as the most effective way to teach statistics to nonmathematical students. Featuring new coauthor, William Notz and new features, exercises, and applications, the sixth edition of Stastisics: Concepts and Controversies is ready to reveal the power of statistics to a new generation of students.
