Statistics for Absolute Beginners (Second Edition) Kindle Edition
Data is collected constantly: how far we travel, who we interact with online and where we spend our money. Every bit of data has a story to tell but isolated, these morsels of information lie dormant and useless, like unattached Lego blocks.
Written by the author of Amazon Best Seller Machine Learning for Absolute Beginners, this book guides you through the fundamentals of inferential and descriptive statistics with a mix of practical demonstrations, visual examples, historical origins, and plain English explanations. As a resource for beginners, this book won't teach you how to beat the market or predict the next U.S. election but ensures a concise and simple-to-understand supplement to a standard textbook.
This includes an introduction to important techniques used to infer predictions from data, such as hypothesis testing, linear regression analysis, confidence intervals, probability theory, and data distribution. Descriptive statistics techniques such as central tendency measures and standard deviation are also covered in this book.

Excellent IntroductionReviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 January 2022
I'm halfway through and think this book is amazing! A good, gentle introduction to statistics. The book briefly covers the historical origins of statistics and uses lots of straightforward real-world examples to aid understanding of the maths. The added humour also helps break up any potential monotony and makes topics more memorable. This book can also serve as a decent reference for those already more knowledgeable and looking for a refresher. Do yourself a favour and get this book!
