This is a popular supplemental book on statistics. The concept is a great idea. Using cartoons to illustrate concepts can make them more interesting and easier to remember.

The execution is not quite as good as the concept. There are some good illustrations but the text is not as easy to follow or understand. If you have a copy, look at the cartoons, read Gravetter & Wallnau’s textbook, and then go back and look at the cartoons again. By then all of the concepts and most of the cartoons will make sense.
