An Important, Accessible Work

This book hit my desk at just the right moment. I am currently working on a project which considers the varied ways a company is targeting its promotional activities and reviewing Google Analytics for past activities. I find this work fascinating. Professor Stanton is a master at making the complex accessible. I took his introductory statistics course and not only learned but actually enjoyed every minute of the course. After reading the first chapter of this new book, I'm already hooked. This is an important text for anyone who wants to understand how data underpins decision-making and impacts our world.
