"There is enchant the educated novice". -- The New York Times Book Review on The World of Physics

"A statistics-appreciation book for the layperson as well as the student". -- Theoni Pappas, author of The Joy of Mathematics

This amusing and illuminating book not only demystifies statistics, but entertains. Jeff Weaver serves as a splendid guide walking us through such dreaded terrors as standard deviation and the multiplication rule. In his jocular and inimitable fashion, Weaver covers the most important and practical areas of statistics and applies them to vivid examples in everyday life: from showing how random variables affect your chances of winning Lotto to learning how to select a meaningful random sample. Whether you're considering the validity of a national poll or the virtues of a revolutionary product, this book will prepare you to make informed judgments on the statistical analyses of others, and arm you to conduct some random samplings and polls of your own.

Don't be at a disadvantage, hiding behind your fear of numbers, while others benefit on the job and in life. Those who base their decisions on robust statistics and sound probability will have a winning edge on the competition. Conquering Statistics offers an invaluable opportunity to grasp what too long seemed elusive and to turn new found knowledge into personal gain.
