Statistics for Absolute Beginners (Second 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.
