Statistics: A Spectator Sport / Edition 1

Statistics is an invaluable work for people who need to understand statistics and utilize their results. This book is not technical or useful to people involved in statistical analysis. Its purpose is to teach a basic understanding applying statistics in work.

Jaeger uses examples (but not equations) to illustrate his argument and to demonstrate how best to approach and understand statistical reports from all areas, including business, government, education and behavioral sciences. Most of the examples are from education, but people in all fields that use statistics will find this book valuable. Written with great clarity, this is a first-rate statistics book for the non-statistician.
