I’m thrilled to release my new ebook! *Introduction to Statistics: An Intuitive Guide for Analyzing Data and Unlocking Discoveries*.

Learn statistics without fear! If you like the clear writing style I use on my website, you’ll love this book! Throughout this ebook, I use the same clear, concise language. I focus on helping you grasp key concepts, methodologies, and procedures while deemphasizing equations.

This 236-page ebook takes you on a voyage. I start with an overview of statistics and why it is so important. Then, we proceed to essential statistical skills and knowledge about different types of data, and how to summarize them both graphically and numerically. Importantly, I’ll show you how to discover relationships between your variables and use probability distributions to calculate probabilities. Then we move to using inferential statistics to expand human knowledge, how it fits into the scientific method, and how to design experiments. Now, that’s an adventure in statistics!

By reading this ebook, you will build a solid foundation for the field of statistics and data analysis. Be confident that you understand what your data are telling you and that you can explain the results to others! After reading this book, you’ll be ready for more advanced topics. At the end of this post, you’ll find the full table of contents.

Hi Marcelo,

I can’t recreate that problem. Can you please describe what you’re doing. Are you clicking the button for the book in the right column of the web page or somewhere else? Where are you clicking? And, what happens? Do you get an error? Thanks! That will help me figure it out.

Hi Jim,

Just purchased your book and on a side note, I hope to understand if someone, after reading your book and gained a reasonable level of understanding on the topics it cover, how would you compare him/her to a MBA student or student who is NOT major in statistics but learned a course on stats as a graduate student in a business major? Just want to get some sense on the depth of the knowledge that could be achieved by reading the book and how much I should continue to learn if I want to be comparable to a MBA.

Thanks,

JC

If this is even half as good as your regression analysis book it will still be a gem! Can’t wait to get reading.
