For liberal arts students, statistics may seem like a foreign language. By emphasizing concepts and statistical thinking over punching numbers into a calculator, and by focusing on real sources from campaign claims to scientific studies, Statistics: Concepts and Controversies helps students understand just how much statistical analysis has to say about their lives and the world around us.

Now, this classic bestseller--the first to feature on David Moore's "data analysis" approach--returns in a thoroughly contemporary new edition, better equipped than ever to provide students with a solid understanding of statistical concepts, an eye for analyzing published data, and an appreciation of statistic's relevance to everyday life.
