The Radical Statistician : Unleashing the power of applied statistics in the real world
"I have reviewed more than 100 statistics textbooks, and The Radical Statistician addresses the ongoing complaints I hear from people about why they didn't "get" statistics. This book is ideal for people who want to gain a solid understanding of the basics of statistical thinking and apply that thinking to real-life situations. Dr. Higgins artfully applies his clear and easy-to-understand approach to each of the topics covered."

He has the ability to readily identify an appropriate statistical analysis, crunch a large dataset in a matter of days, and, importantly, to display the results in a format that is understandable to the client, regardless of their statistical knowledge. His format and explanations make you comfortable understanding, communicating and dispositioning the results. Jim removes the intimidation from the math."
