Practical Statistics is for anyone who wants to learn basic statistics for work, school, research, or the sheer enjoyment of gaining new knowledge.

In contrast to other books on the subject which emphasize statistical theory and mathematical manipulation, Practical Statistics focuses on practical applications and decision making.

When necessary, the use of appropriate levels of theory and mathematics serves to highlight the broad applicability of statistical reasoning and analysis to real world problems. Some other features of the book include: (a) the use of a unique, decision model framework, (b) concrete examples of decision problems with detailed explanations of their solutions, and (c) optional pop quizzes with answers and explanations of the methods used and why.
