Praise for The Cartoon Introduction to Economics: Volume Two. The major concepts of macroeconomics are broken down with wit, verve, and clarity . . . This clever, lucid, and lighthearted book is a godsend to anyone who needs a simple but complete primer on the ins and outs of economics. --Publishers Weekly

Présentation de l'éditeur

Statistics help us create Internet technologies, develop medicines, win elections, invest in stocks, predict the weather, and much more. But the methods that produce important numbers remain beyond many of us. How do we determine the proper size of a sample? How, exactly, do we calculate standard deviation? And just what is the central limit theorem? In The Cartoon Introduction to Statistics, Grady Klein and Alan Dabney cut through the confusion and take us on a tour of this dynamic subject, helping us stay afloat on the sea of data that is our increasingly complex world. Separating the book into two main parts (hunting statistics and gathering parameters) for readers both in and outside the classroom, they explore the key foundational concepts of statistics and the perils of improper methods. They round out the book with the Math Cave, which provides easy access to the formulas every student will want to have close at hand. Through cheeky and irreverent examples bound to engage anyone grappling with the difference between histograms and boxplots, Klein and Dabney have created a rollicking narrative about the best ways to make confident statements based on limited information. Timely, authoritative, and a pleasure to read, The Cartoon Introduction to Statistics is an essential guide for students and for curious readers who want to better understand the world around them.

The Cartoon Introduction to Statistics teaches the basics of statistics using comics to illustrate various portions of the greater topic. Each chapter in the book covers a very specific facet of statistics, and each of these chapters build upon those that came before it. We start with a nice introduction that gives a high level view of what statistics can do for us and why we should care. This leads into discussions of numbers, random raw data, sorting, sample size, variables, simple and complex analyses, generalizing from a sample to a wider population, parameters and the central limit theorem, normal distributions, probabilities, inference, confidence, hypotheses and testing, and what statistics can and can not tell us (probability vs. certainty). All of the mathematics are contained in the back of the book and are referred to in the text when and where appropriate.

What makes this book stand out are the illustrated examples used throughout the book. Rather than being a book with one main narrative or plot, this is a non-fiction prose book that has occasional illustrated stories used to clarify complex concepts. Some are simple, like talking about how to determine how many fish in a lake fit a certain category. Others are more imaginative, like exploring whether male or female dragon riders are faster while taking into account dragon size. Regardless of whether the examples are more realistic or more whimsical, they are well thought out and useful. The illustrations throughout the book are nicely drawn and consistently appropriate.

This is a worthy entry in the education-focused manga/comic library.

HASH(0x94ab9780) étoiles sur 5 One of the best introductions to Statistics 26 octobre 2013
Par AkG - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Here's one of the most intuitive book I have ever read on Statistics! I recommend this book to anyone who always had a bad feeling about Statistics.

The book covers some of the very basic elements of Statistics; it does that job wonderfully. It omits the usual techno-jargons, proofs, and other related tables for the sake of clarity. The authors have tried to explain all the concepts without the help of any "pre-required" familiarity with the topic or related topics.

The book has two sections - first section on the basics. It starts with an introduction on why we need statistics (Yes, not because that's a subject in school / college). It then builds up on the requirement of randomness in variable selection and other features of data (only the useful descriptive statistics, not the whole list that we usually find in other 'serious' books. I didn't see 'kurtosis' at all, even though they have used the concept in many places.) and importance of visualising using histograms first and simple examination of data.

Section two covers the application side with examples laid out on what confidence intervals mean, and why we need them. Followed by some fun-filled examples, authors have clearly nailed it. To me, the beauty of the book is clearly the next part, which is on hypothesis testing. The ease with which the authors have explained it, with some of the best illustrations, clearly will help students understand this topic. I've seen how some of the basic and advanced text books have handled this topic, and I feel so relieved that somebody has bothered to explain these in such an easy to understand way. It has covered how HT works, and why it works only under certain conditions.

The book ends with some of the tweaks (or variations) that one can make to cover more application areas. It's followed by a nicely written glossary on all the related basic topics.

Overall, this is clearly a book that every high-school or junior college student should read. It may not cover a lot of ground, but then, that's the beauty of the book, and exactly the point authors tried to make. Once you understand the basics, it's just a matter of tweaking it here and there.

Full disclosure: I borrowed this book from a library out of curiosity, and now, have ordered a copy. I've a Masters level Math/Stats background.

HASH(0x94ab9bb8) étoiles sur 5 Excellent for introduction to statistics 1 septembre 2013

Fun reading and very informative. Excellent introduction of some of the most important principles of statistics. Statistics are used by politicians, businesses, and drug companies many times to try and lead to unwarranted conclusions. This book shows how to use statistics properly and how to judge whether statistics are valid. I would recommend this book to anyone with a curious mind.

HASH(0x94ab9ba0) étoiles sur 5 Fun review of basic statistics 7 octobre 2013

I got a copy of this after seeing it reviewed in Scientific American. Although I have had statistics classes and used the fundamentals for years, this book brought back the fundamentals of statistics. It really helps you visualize the data and how to best apply the tools. I am getting copies for everyone who works for me. Lucky them.

HASH(0x94ab9f6c) étoiles sur 5 CIS Review 21 novembre 2013
Par Chaz Hutchison - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Cartoon Introduction to Statistics is a fun and easily accessible peek into the world of statistics. The book uses illustrations and humor to draw the reader in and keep his attention, then gradually and comprehensively explains the nature and usage of statistics. The initial reaction to what amounts to being a comic book about statistics is certainly not to take it seriously, but the writers seriously capture and explain statistics in a way that anyone can understand. Dividing the book into gradually more complex sections, the writers move at a steady pace, never explaining a topic too much or too little. Math wizards and dunces alike will understand the basics of stats by the end of this book, and learn a lot about analysis in the process. The book is accessible, informative, and fun for readers of any age, but the group that would benefit the most from reading would be junior high and high school students. A solid, entertaining, and valuable examination of data analysis.
