Current books on statistics and data analysis assume a certain level of knowledge on the part of the student. Figuring Figures avoids the shortcomings of introductory data analysis books by focusing on the communication of data, as understanding the data presented by others is just as important as being able to communicate one's own data. The emphasis is on practical data analysis rather than strict accuracy and precision, and little recourse is made to statistical theory. There are next to no equations. The book's sole aim is to make the analysis of quantitative data a simple and enjoyable task.
