Description of this Book

This extremely short book helps explain the benefits of learning Statistics-especially in an introductory course, a course that often leaves students wondering, Am I ever going to use this information again? The short answer is Yes! Indeed, the probability of using Statistics outside the classroom is high. Even the most simple statistical concepts typically have a broad range of application, both for experts in the field as well as for those who only learn the basics. By reading this brief novel, which can easily accompany a more thorough textbook with formulas and problems to solve if desired, the reader will realize the importance of statistical principles like variance, samples, and correlation. While the examples will appear incredibly trivial to many readers, especially to those more advanced in the discipline, these examples highlight the practicality of Statistics in an extremely simple way-and hopefully serve as motivation for the reader to master (if they haven't already) at least some statistical concepts. I want to emphasize that this book is written for a broad audience, providing useful information regardless of whether the reader plans to pursue a career in Statistics or not. Even if the reader plans to take only one introductory course in Statistics, likely to fulfill a general education requirement or to fulfill a prerequisite for a different major, this book still provides many benefits. Designed with such a broad audience in mind, this book has been written in an extremely easy-to-read fashion, the material focusing much more on conceptual examples than on mathematical computations. A reader interested more in mathematically rigorous explanations should ensure that the text is accompanied by a textbook and/or collegiate course. Indeed, the overall goal of the novel is quite simple: to explore the broad application of statistics through entertaining and relatable examples.
