The books own opening paragraph states that it assume you have X knowledge of statistics and X experience of education with them. It is also clear the book is written by an American with reference to American education and terms of reference which British readers may not be accustomed to. So maybe the guide for dummies is best left on the shelf if you are completely new to statistics. That being said however those wishing for a quick catch up on knowledge they already have will find the book useful.
As I don't have a background in statistics at all it was useful to start from the very basics and this book does that. From looking at common misconceptions in statistics often reported in the news and analysing other erroneous use of statistical data this book helped me to build the confidence I needed to produce the reporting I was asked for and be confident that it could be relied upon. This book was so useful for me that I have also bought statistics II for dummies which I look forward to reading.
The content of the book is only okay too .... the explanations and slightly disjointed chapters made me fall to sleep reading it ...plenty of room for improvement
