Statistics is hard, especially for beginners.

Actually, it’s not as hard as you might think, and I intend to prove it to you!


Probably the biggest barrier to getting started in statistics is all the complex mathematics and complicated terminology.


You don’t need these, though. You can learn the basics of statistics without all the complicated stuff.

What you need is a book – or better still, a series of short, snappy books – that will help you get started and inspire you to take the next steps.

That’s what Getting Started With Statistics is all about.


I’ve written a series of ‘Getting Started…’ guides on a number of different stats topics:

·        Data Collection

·        Data Types

·        Hypothesis Testing

·        Bayes’ Theorem and Bayesian Statistics


All of these bite-sized books are included in this series, and more are currently being written – this series will get bigger and bigger over time!

And don’t forget – when you purchase this series from Leanpub, all future books in the series will be FREE to download, right here at Leanpub.


Here’s a short description of each of the books currently available in Getting Started With Statistics:

Data Collection is a short guide to getting your data collection plan up and running, and is about everything you ever wanted to know (but were afraid to ask) about data collection and answers the most frequently asked questions about collecting data.

Data Types introduces you to the 4 types of data you’ll encounter in statistics in statistics, answers the most frequently asked questions and inspires you to take the next steps in your journey.

Hypothesis Testing is a short guide to learning how to ask all the right questions of your data to help you in choosing the correct statistical hypothesis test, aided by The Hypothesis Wheel.

Bayes’ Theorem and Bayesian Statistics is a short, non-threatening introduction to Bayes’ Theorem and Bayesian Statistics that dispels the biggest myths, answers the most frequently asked questions and shows you how to take the next steps in your journey.
