"It's a well-kept secret that statistics is fun, relevant to everyone, and intellectually rewarding. Grady Klein and Alan Dabney have let the cat out of the bag with their approachable and humorous journey through the fundamental ideas that make statistics indispensable in today's data-rich world."—John Storey, Professor of genomics and statistics, Princeton University "This book is a perfect treatment for anyone with a phobia of statistics or numbers. It is fun, clear, and wonderfully intuitive."—Charles Wheelan, author of Naked Statistics: Stripping The Dread From The Data"Thank goodness someone finally wrote a book on statistics that is actually fun to read. Be careful when you buy this book—you might not put it down until you read it all the way to the end."—Sebastian Thrun, Google Fellow and CEO of Udacity“The major concepts of macroeconomics are broken down with wit, verve, and clarity . . . This clever, lucid, and lighthearted book is a godsend to anyone who needs a simple but complete primer on the ins and outs of economics.”—Publishers Weekly
