In this 3rd edition revised text, master expositor Sheldon Ross has produced a unique work in introductory statistics. The text's main merits are the clarity of presentation, contemporary examples and applications from diverse areas, and an explanation of intuition and ideas behind the statistical methods. Concepts are motivated, illustrated and explained in a way that attempts to increase one's intuition. To quote from the preface, "It is only when a student develops a feel or intuition for statistics that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data."
Ross achieves this goal through a coherent mix of mathematical analysis, intuitive discussions and examples.
Applications and examples refer to real-world issues, such as gun control, stock price models, health issues, driving age limits, school admission ages, use of helmets, sports, scientific fraud and many others.

Title: Introductory Statistics <>Binding: Hardcover <>Author: Sheldon M Ross <>Publisher: Elsevier Science & TechnologyReview:
"This is an excellent text. Possibly the best introductory text I have ever taught out of and I have been teaching Introductory Statistics since 1979. I have been using the book for the last three years and …cannot think of any reason why I would ever switch to another text. "
- Vincent Lariccia, University of Delaware
“ Ross has done an outstanding job in the number and quality of his exercises. The examples are realistic, stimulating and cover a wide variety of practical situations. Ross is a master in clear and concise exposition…his style will appeal to students taking their first course in Statistics. I would definitely recommend adoption.”
- John Deely, Purdue University
