Today I read the Introduction and Chapter 1 What’s the Point from the book Naked Statistics by Charles Wheelan. For those of you who have always struggled with math, maybe it is because you/we were not taught the ‘why’ behind it.
This book is about the intuition. It is short on math, equations, and graphs; when they are used, I promise that they will have a clear and enlightening purpose. Meanwhile, the book is long on examples to convince you that there are great reasons to learn this stuff. Statistics can be really interesting, and most of it isn’t that difficult.quote from the author, Charles Wheelan, Introduction, page xii
