Description


Statistics for the Terrified (7th ed.) is a user-friendly introduction to elementary statistics, intended primarily for the reluctant, math-anxious, math-avoidant person. Written in a personal and informal style, with healthy doses of humor and encouragement, the aim of this book is to help readers make the leap from apprehension to comprehension of elementary statistics. This book also presents self-help strategies (based on the cognitive behavioral techniques of rational emotive therapy) that help people manage their math anxiety so that they can relax and build confidence while learning statistics. Statistics for the Terrified makes statistics accessible to people by first helping them manage their emotions and by presenting them with other essential material for learning statistics before jumping in. After covering the essentials, the book presents an introduction to elementary statistics in a personal and informal manner with a great deal of encouragement and step-by-step assistance with numerous concrete examples.
