This book presents balanced coverage of the theory and application of statistics while enhancing reader's critical thinking skills.

This book shows readers that knowledge of statistics is important to their own lives. Almost all of the I examples and exercises are based on current, real-world applications pulled from journals, magazines, news articles, and commerce. Presents the importance of data collection, observations, experiments, and surveys in drawing meaningful inferences from data. Now provides an equal balance between applications relying on p-values and those relying on critical values in their interpretation.
