From the Back Cover:

An ideal introduction to statistics in any field.

This text uses words and diagrams, rather than formulas and equations, to help students from all subject areas understand what statistics is, and how to think statistically. The author uses a question-and-answer presentation style to help students learn on their own. Statistics Without Tears focuses on the ideas behind statistics only; students are not required to perform any calculations.
