Author Prem Mann makes statistics both interesting and accessible to a wide and varied audience. Readers will find the explanation of statistical methods and concepts is clear and concise. In order to make the material even more accessible, numerous examples are integrated throughout the chapters and a solution follows each problem presented in an example. Case studies are also incorporated to provide additional illustrations of the applications of statistics in research and statistical analysis. Most of these case studies are based on articles published in journals, magazines, or newspapers.
