This book was developed as a starter for anyone new to, or even struggling to come to grips with statistics.

We have been teaching statistics successfully through our online course for decades; but we have found that some people don’t need to go as deeply into the subject, and others sometimes find it challenging to undertake a course at that depth.  This ebook has been developed to be a step before that course, to provide a novice to the subject with a more digestible introduction.
