This book is an attempt at explaining statistics with very few mathematical formulas. It is however not simplistic. The book does a good job of explaining some of the less and medium technical aspects of how statistics are derived and evaluated.. Worth reading if you are interested in the subject.

I found it uneven, bouncing too much between too simplistic and too technical
