First Course in Statistics
by D Caradog Jones
Publisher: G Bell 1921
Number of pages: 288
The book is divided into two parts. Practically all the first part should be well within the understanding of the ordinary person. Part 2 is more mathematical, but an effort has been made throughout to explain results in such a way that the reader shall gain a general idea of the theory and be able to apply it without needing to master all the actual proofs. The whole is meant, not as an exhaustive treatise, but merely as a first course introducing the reader to more serious works, and, since real inspiration is to be found nowhere so surely as at the source, it is intended to encourage and fit him to pursue the subject further by consulting at least the most important original papers referred to in the text, only enough references being given to awaken curiosity.

Here I present statistics for the ordinary person. Examples are taken from ordinary life. The book begins with basic concepts behind the statistics and never gets harder than simple arithmetic. The course is presented as a series of key ideas.
Statistics is the study of the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation and organization of data. It deals with all aspects of data including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments.

This book is an alternative to the usual textbooks for a one-semester course in statistics. The author tried to make statistics approachable to anyone with high-school math, but it's still a technical subject. There is very little use of formulas.

An accessible, comprehensive guide to the theory of Bayesian statistics, this book presents the subjective Bayesian approach, which has played a pivotal role in game theory, economics, and the recent boom in Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods.
