Abstract

You probably are reading this book because you think it is important to know something about the subject of statistics. At the same time, you may suspect that studying statistics won’t be the pleasantest task you have ever undertaken. We have seen too many reluctant students to think statistics courses are automatically crowd pleasers. We know some of you would prefer to analyze a poem, sing a ballad, or dissect a frog. But we think we have enough knowledge of student temperament to speak to all of you, eager and less than eager.
