His textbook helps students understand the process of basic statistical arguments, a skill that will help them in their coursework and as they enter a life beyond academics. The driving philosophy of Introductory Statistics: A Problem-Solving Approachis simple: statistics is often hard for students but, when presented in an orderly, precise, friendly manner (and with some humor), statistics can change the way students think about math and about the world around them
