I’m thrilled to release my new book! Introduction to Statistics: An Intuitive Guide for Analyzing Data and Unlocking Discoveries .

This 236-page book takes you on a voyage. I start with an overview of statistics and why it is so important. Then, we proceed to essential statistical skills and knowledge about different types of data, and how to summarize them both graphically and numerically. Importantly, I’ll show you how to discover relationships between your variables and use probability distributions to calculate probabilities. Then we move to using inferential statistics to expand human knowledge, how it fits into the scientific method, and how to design experiments. Now, that’s an adventure in statistics!

By reading this book, you will build a solid foundation for the field of statistics and data analysis. Be confident that you understand what your data are telling you and that you can explain the results to others! After reading this book, you’ll be ready for more advanced topics. At the end of this post, you’ll find the full table of contents.

Buy it on Amazon (US site)! ! Or go to my Web Store for other locations.

## My eBook Covers the Following Critical Statistical Concepts, Methods, and Skills

In this book, learn the fundamentals of statistics, including the following:

- What is the field of statistics and why is it so vital in our data-driven society?
- Learn about various types of data and how to use them.
- Interpret graphs and summary statistics.
- Find relationships between different types of variables.
- Understand the properties of data distributions.
- Use measures of central tendency and variability.
- Interpret correlations and percentiles.
- Use probability distributions to calculate probabilities.
- Learn about the normal distribution and the binomial distributions in depth.
- Grasp the differences between descriptive and inferential statistics.
- Use data collection methodologies properly and understand sample size considerations.

Jim, Can you explain Covariance beyond the the basic definition, or positive and negative value, in that it is a measure of association between two variables, or rather how much two variables vary together? How or when would this be used when dealing with data? Thank you!

April 15, 2021 at 4:47 pm

Covariance has limited useful in the real world. While is correlation is standardizes to it’ll fall within -1 to +1, covariance is unstandardized. It’ll vary based on both the relationship between the variables and the values of the variables themselves. There is no intuitive interpretation for covariance. I don’t have a good use case from when to use it.

In short, just use correlation and don’t use covariance.

February 16, 2021 at 9:50 am

Jim, I’m interested in how you would describe the first 4 moments of distribution. I’ve googled this and the sites describe it in terms of its mathematics—rather than what it means to the data. Skewness of -4 or -2 — I know the sign means direction. But what power does the number have? Same with kurtosis.

November 21, 2020 at 3:57 pm

Hello Jim, Is this book available in PDF format? Before purchasing ebook i thought to conform. Regards

November 21, 2020 at 4:06 pm

Hi Maaz! Yes, if you buy it through my website, you’ll get it in PDF format. It is available in other formats elsewhere. For example, you can get it from Amazon in print and Kindle formats.

October 21, 2020 at 10:54 am

Hi Jim, Trust that you are doing fine!!! How do I purchase your Intro to Statistics book? What is the cost in INR (Indian Rupees)? How do I find out that?

August 20, 2020 at 7:04 am

Hello, I just discovered your site. I have a superficial knowledge of statistical tools, and use them from time to time without really understarnding what they are.

I have only read a couple of your blog posts and I think your books would be a great next step. My ultimate goal is to be able to use logistic regression with confidence.

Can you suggest the sequence I should study the books in? Should I read the “Intro…” if I plan to study the more advanced books?

Also, are the topics you cover in the blog posts, also covered in the books? Or rather are they “supplements” I should study separately?

Thank you, Antoine

August 21, 2020 at 11:34 am

Hi Antoine,

My books go into more depth than the website. There is content in the books that are not in my blog posts. The order I envision people reading them is the following: Introduction to Statistics, Hypothesis Testing, and Regression Analysis. Although, with an urgent need to learn a particular area, you can rearrange that order.

If you’re uncertain about what each book contains, I’d recommend going to My Store and downloading the free samples for each book. Each free sample has one or two chapters plus the entire table of contents. That allows you to see what each book covers. No credit card is necessary for the free samples.

Happy reading!

August 17, 2020 at 2:37 am

Hi Jim Which of your e-book best explain r, r squared, adjusted r and p value?

Thank you Jim

August 17, 2020 at 9:00 pm

Hi Tomingan,

You’d definitely want to get my Regression ebook !

July 28, 2020 at 9:16 pm

I’ve tried Chrome and Edge browsers and can’t find a link to buy your books. Based on your articles I imagine the books are pretty good.

July 29, 2020 at 12:09 am

Thanks, I appreciate the kind words!

I’ve got all three of my ebooks listed in the right column of the website. You can also find them all in My Store menu along the top (or click the link), which includes the free sample versions (first chapter or two) along with the paid full versions.

February 16, 2020 at 7:10 pm

I have the same problems. There are no links to buy the book(s) anywhere on the blog. Your side messages “Buy My Introduction to Statistics eBook! and Buy My Regression eBook!” are just texts without any links. And there are no links in the blog posts either.

So make sure to update the links so people can throw cash at you! ^_^

February 17, 2020 at 1:14 am

Hi, I thought I had that problem sorted out. Drats! I’m out of town now but will look into it soon. Thanks for letting me know it’s still a problem. It seems to work for some but not others. Try clearing your browser cache too just in case my previous “fix” isn’t being used by your browser.

January 6, 2020 at 12:38 pm

the links: Buy My Introduction to Statistics eBook! Buy My Regression eBook!

its not working, I try in differents web browsers(Opera,Chrome, Safari, Firefox).

Can you help ?

att, Marcelo

January 6, 2020 at 2:57 pm

Hi Marcelo,

I can’t recreate that problem. Can you please describe what you’re doing. Are you clicking the button for the book in the right column of the web page or somewhere else? Where are you clicking? And, what happens? Do you get an error? Thanks! That will help me figure it out.

November 4, 2019 at 1:46 am

Just purchased your book and on a side note, I hope to understand if someone, after reading your book and gained a reasonable level of understanding on the topics it cover, how would you compare him/her to a MBA student or student who is NOT major in statistics but learned a course on stats as a graduate student in a business major? Just want to get some sense on the depth of the knowledge that could be achieved by reading the book and how much I should continue to learn if I want to be comparable to a MBA.

September 26, 2019 at 3:24 pm

If this is even half as good as your regression analysis book it will still be a gem! Can’t wait to get reading.

September 30, 2019 at 2:57 pm

Thank you so much, Leonard! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

September 6, 2019 at 2:09 am

Dear Jim, Links are not working for me. Please help.

September 6, 2019 at 2:38 am

Hi Deb, I’m not sure which links you mean? If you’re referring to the links to buy the book, I’ve checked and they’re working. Please supply additional details. What browser are you using? What happens exactly? Thank you!

September 5, 2019 at 10:26 am

Great book!

September 2, 2019 at 11:49 pm

I’ve learned a lot from your site and this site got me interested in statistics and help me to see it’s real application in my day-to-day job… Thanks again… I got your book, looking forward to study and apply the knowledge and wisdom from it.

What is Hypothesis Testing? Hypothesis testing in statistics uses sample data to infer the properties of a whole population.These tests determine whether a random sample provides sufficient evidence to conclude an effect or relationship exists in the population. Researchers use them to help separate genuine population-level effects from false effects that random chance can create in samples.

The researchers write their hypotheses. These statements apply to the population, so they use the mu (μ) symbol for the population mean parameter.. Null Hypothesis (H 0): The population means of the test scores for the two groups are equal (μ 1 = μ 2).; Alternative Hypothesis (H A): The population means of the test scores for the two groups are unequal (μ 1 ≠ μ 2).
