No textbook communicates the basics of statistical analysis to liberal arts students as effectively as the bestselling Statistics: Concepts and Controversies (SCC).  And no text makes it easier for these students to understand and talk about statistical claims they encounter in commercials, campaigns, the media, sports, and elsewhere in their lives. 

The new edition offers SCC’s signature combination of engaging cases, real-life examples and exercises, helpful pedagogy, rich full-color design, and innovative media learning tools, all significantly updated.
