Not bad, but could not tell you anything new...

This book is an introduction to the use of statistics in modern world and science. It presents in an easy way several statistical concepts which are (should be) key to the our daily lives. It also shows the problem of not taking those concepts into account. The book has no formulae, and has a nice explanation of conditional probability. However, even if you took an undergrad course in statistics and probability, its content could be superfluous. I would say that the book is great if your background is not scientific or technical, and even being that, it is well written and is easily readable.
