Book cover: Stats without TearsStats without Tears
by - BrownMath.com
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.
