Summary

This revision focuses on conceptual growth. It helps readers develop an understanding of statistical logic and procedures, the properties of statistical devices, the importance of the assumptions underlying statistical tools, and what happens when the strict requirements of statistical theory meet the circumstances of real-world data.
