Publisher's Summary

Thinking Statistically is the book that shows you how to think like a statistician, without worrying about formal statistical techniques. Along the way we learn how selection bias can explain why your boss doesn't know he sucks (even when everyone else does); how to use Bayes' theorem to decide if your partner is cheating on you; and why Mark Zuckerberg should never be used as an example for anything. See the world in a whole new light, and make better decisions and judgments without ever going near a t-test.
Think. Think Statistically.

Nice simple intro to statistics.

Title pretty much sums it up. Statistics are an important aspect of everyday life, just not in a personal level. I'm not sure how many people would actively engage is probabilistic thinking, no matter how much better their decisions would be. Even though I personally dislike math, statistics really makes me not want to. I can see it's usefulness, but the learning curve is pretty steep. I liked how simple the explanations were, they really helped understand the concepts, I was even able to relate them to some specific circumstances so that helped also.
Overall, I think the book is worth the listen. For a more thorough application other input is necessary.

Short but sweet (and impact full)

Never thought I could learn so much with such a short book. Cuts through the fluff and teaches you statistical theories you can quickly apply to daily life.
