[Very Short Introductions] David J

Review :

This is not a practical book, but rather a short description of statistics, from its worth to its methods. And I struggle to conceive of how it could have been better written. OK, the penultimate chapter is essentially just a slightly staccato series of mini-introductions to various aspects of stats too involved to cover in greater detail, but up to that point the book is engaging, concise, and witty - a real breath of fresh air.

I may not know much more about stats now than I did when I started reading (speaking purely personally, not for every potential reader), but I do know one thing: David J Hand can write a book.
