Customer Review

on 21 December 2010
Probability is something that affects us all these days, if you've ever filled in a credit application you will have been scored using a statistical process according to the information you fill in. Although we like to think of ourselves as individuals, our behaviour as a group, on average, is quite predictable. So what is statistically significant? This book will tell you, without blinding you with science or bogging you down with equations. The anecdotes are quite interesting and the history of statistics is presented quite well. You won't learn enough to go out and get a number crunching job but you might be a bit more sceptical the next time you read statistics presented in the mass media. For the intelligent lay person who wants to be better informed about probability and statistics this is a useful introduction.
