Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Re: Cartoon guide to statistics Generally, it is a fun book to read and it had employed cartoon to explain complex concepts. However, the disadvantage about this book is that it lacks of applications and examples. But overall, it's recommended to people who don't have a background in statistics!
