"If you are looking for a book that shows you fun and real-life applications of 2D geometry while explaining its concepts lucidly, then Head First 2D Geometry by Lisa Fallow and Dawn Griffiths is definitely for you. There is not one thing about this book that is dull or boring - the words most frequently associated with a traditional geometry textbook."

"The study of statistics can be dry and difficult, but not with this non-intimidating, heavily illustrated, and entertaining guide. The author uses real-world examples, stories, and puzzles to engage the reader with the content equivalent to a first-year high school or college statistics course. The book is different, and, for the beginner, better than any statistics textbook."
--Michael L. Kleper, The Kleper Report on Digital Publishing

"Students will find it a stimulating, easy way to learn what is usually a dry topic. "
--Diane C. Donovan, California Bookwatch: The Science Shelf

--Neil Davis, Amazon.co.uk

"Don't know the difference between the mean, the median and the average? Don't worry, hardly anybody does. But you'll learn about it here all right. "
--Bob and Joy Schwabach, On Computers

--John Bollinger, The Capital Growth Letter

"This book covers the full range of topics dealt with in first-year statistics. If only it really *were* the textbook used, statistics would be more firmly set as a common skill -- and Wall Street would be much more circumspect in how it pleads poverty."
--Brett Merkey, Amazon.com

"...the ideal background text for high school and college students taking statistics seriously."
--Michael Shaw, Macintosh Users East (MaUsE)
