The Goldilocks of Intro Stats Books Jan. 13 2008
By Econ Doc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I teach MBA students and they often ask about a good intro to statistics. I have looked at many intro level books in the past, and most were either much too basic or assumed too much background knowledge. Thurman's book is really the Goldilocks text -- not too basic, not too complicated, just right for new MBA students.

Finally a good textbook. Is the price right? Feb. 4 2008
By E. Yasar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a student, do you always skip the statistics part when you read a scientific article and only read the end. Well, worry no more. This book really makes you learn.

I have the feeling that this book will be the next best-seller among MBA's after Graham and Dodd's Book on Value Investing.

I still can't believe this book is on the market with this price. It makes me feel I have been robbed when I spent $100 on all other big text books that I barely read a chapter.

Fantastic Stats Professor Jan. 18 2008
By REEM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had the priviledge to study statistics with Professor Paul Thurman at Columbia University. I can honestly say he was one of the best professors I encountered at Columbia. He can teach a blind bat how to work on stata, I know because I was the equivilant of a blind bat in statistics. His course helped me learn how to use statistics in a practical manner-- helping me see the importance of stats in every day life. While not everyone has the luxury of having Professor Thurman as their professor, they can now have the next best thing, this book.

Excellent Book and a Must Have Jan. 4 2008
By Olafur Olafsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is great material and a must have for those wanting to broaden their statistics knowledge and to apply it to business. I've had a chance to read college and graduate school textbooks but those resources don't compare to the content/knowledge provided by Paul Thurman. Besides, the material has been taught at top universities and is being applied at many excellent corporations.

Explain Key Statistics Concepts in an understandable way.
The author puts emphasis on the assumptions of statistic test, which is very important.
