Richard De Veaux, Paul Velleman, and David Bock wrote Intro Stats with the goal that students and instructors have as much fun reading it as they did writing it. Maintaining a conversational, humorous, and informal writing style, this new edition engages students from the first page.

The authors focus on statistical thinking throughout the text and rely on technology for calculations. As a result, students can focus on developing their conceptual understanding. Innovative Think/Show/Tell examples give students a problem-solving framework and, more importantly, a way to think through any statistics problem and present their results.

New to the Fourth Edition is a streamlined presentation that keeps students focused on what’s most important, while including out helpful features. An updated organization divides chapters into sections, with specific learning objectives to keep students on track. A detailed table of contents assists with navigation through this new layout. Single-concept exercises complement the existing mid- to hard-level exercises for basic skill development.
