Even You Can Learn Statistics, Second Edition is the easiest guide to using statistics in your everyday work or study. Experienced educators David Levine and David Stephan teach statistics hands-on, in plain English, with as little math and as many revealing examples as possible. Levine and Stephan define each concept and technique in plain English, and then explain why it's important, when it's used, and how you can apply it yourself. This second edition is fully updated. Along the way, Levine and Stephan also help you overcome common misconceptions about statistics, so you can use any statistical method more confidently and successfully.

In this classic book, long-time CEO Robert Follett shows you exactly how to "keep score" in business by reading and interpreting company financials. Step by step, Follett helps you capture crucial insights buried in balance sheets, income statements, and other key financial reports. Follett shows how to apply core tools for analyzing financial reports and investment opportunities, and demystifies key accounting terms every manager and investor needs to know. This book won't turn you into an accountant, but it will enable you to work confidently with accountants, auditors, financial analysts, budget directors, controllers, treasurers, bankers, and brokers—and make more informed business decisions every single day. Thoroughly updated for current financial practices, How to Keep Score in Business, Second Edition covers all this, and much more.
