Tao of Statistics by Dana K. Keller

Book Description

The Tao of Statistics provides a new approach to statistics in plain English. Unlike other introductions to statistics, this text explains what statistics mean and how they are used, rather than how to calculate them. The book walks readers through basic concepts, as well as some of the most complex statistical models in use. Professionals and college students who want to be informed about statistics, but do not want to spend a lot of time learning to how compute them should not be without this volume. Features and Benefits: - Covers basic statistics in an accessible fashion without emphasizing computation - Covers the field more broadly than any other text like it - Is ideal for readers who do not consider themselves good at maths, have little interest in computing statistics, or just want to understand them - Each concept is presented via impressions from a verse, an illustration, and about 230 words of text

Author Biography - Dana K. Keller

Dana K. Keller, PhD, has explored Eastern philosophies for almost five decades, including a journey to China and Tibet. He embraces two very different worlds: the West's scientific approach to knowledge and the East's more intuitive and experiential approach. In The Tao of Statistics, he presents a way that the two worlds can mutually benefit. After supervising the research for over 100 doctoral dissertations, he joined the Delmarva Foundation as its chief statistician. During his seven years there, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services named him as a national resource for the nation's managed care organizations for sampling and research methodology. His almost unique ability to explain statistical and methodological constructs in everyday language has resulted in his being frequently requested as a presenter and technical expert panel member. As president of Halcyon Research, Inc., he continues to bring his ability to explain statistical concepts simply to an ever-widening audience.
