This book is true to its title. It IS a primer for non-mathematicians. It teaches extremely useful concepts in a concise and simple way with as little math as possible. A small and easy to read book - you will want to take it with you and read it on the bus, plane, subway, etc.
The only drawback is the price - however, it may be not so expensive if it saves you several hours that would be otherwise spent trying to read other, less readable, books. How much is your time worth to you?

The text is the first I've found that speaks about statistics in truly lay terms. No Carl Sagan, the author nonetheless brings a difficult--and potentially boring--subject to the masses. Okay, not the masses. Let's just say, the interested. I teach a Stats course in a large M.B.A. program; I recommend this book to all my students.

The book is interesting, but absolute overpriced
