I found myself recently having to teach a statistics course to college graduates, so I decided to get this book in order to try to make statistics a bit less painful.

There are two promises in the book: 1) to make it fun and 2) to make it easy to learn. The fun part did not reach its promise, the examples did not seem to me to captivate the audience and make them truly excited about it. To make it fun I borrowed some examples from Simon Singh's The Code Book on decyphering codes, which was much more effective at least in getting people excited. The level that the author is presenting to is much more of a high school and below crowd than a grown-up crowd.

As for making it easy, the author certainly makes a good effort at taking the complexity out of teaching and using examples that make it very clear what each concept means. The probability section I think is particularly worthy of praise. However, once you need to get into slighly more complex ideas such as binomial distributions, t-stats, etc., the book does not follow through.

This is a good book to teach beginners without much math background the very basic stats, high school level. If you need to go farther than that, I would suggest you stick to the textbook and look elsewhere for good ideas.
