Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom by Stephen M. Stigler Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom, Paperback (March 2016)

What gives statistics its unity as a science? Stephen Stigler sets forth the seven foundational ideas of statistics-a scientific discipline related to but distinct from mathematics and computer science and one which often seems counterintuitive. His original account will fascinate the interested layperson and engage the professional statistician.

History of Statistics by Stephen M. Stigler History of Statistics, Paperback (July 1990)

Stigler shows how statistics arose from the interplay of mathematical concepts and the needs of several applied sciences. His emphasis is upon how methods of probability theory were developed for measuring uncertainty, for reducing uncertainty, and as a conceptual framework for quantitative studies in the social sciences.
