many consider to be a less-than-thrilling subject.”
school library journal on the manga guide to statistics
“This is really what a good math text should be like. Unlike the majority of books on
subjects like statistics, it doesn’t just present the material as a dry series of pointless-

of quirkiness about it that makes you keep reading just for
the joy of it.”
