This book takes an intuitive approach to presenting statistical theory. More conceptually than computationally oriented, the book covers both descriptive and inferential statistics. The narrative of the book develops concepts first using prose, explaining calculations in simple language, before introducing formulae. Pagano's informal writing style is received well by students, especially those who are not mathematically inclined.
