New Stats Book by Grant Foster
Grant Foster has published a new statistics book titled "Understanding Statistics: Basic Theory and Practice".
Many of you will remember Grant as a former employee of the AAVSO. Of his many accomplishments were programming the original versions of TS, WWZ and VStar software. He also developed the CLEANEST and WWZ algorithms for analyzing variable star data. He's given many talks at AAVSO meetings both during his employment and after. He also wrote the excellent book Analyzing Light Curves: A Practical Guide. This book is aimed at describing the fundamentals of "Stats 101".
I have not read it myself yet. However, I already ordered it just on his reputation alone. Grant is one of the best people I've met at describing stats to a layperson, so I have high expectations for the book.

p/s: I get nothing from this plug. I just have high esteem for Mr. Foster. :)
