The
Manager's Guide to Statistics,
2018 Edition is
an introduction to statistics for aspiring managers, leaders and decision
makers who do not need to know all the details of statistical theory and just
want real applications and commonsense explanations using words and diagrams
 without a jumble of Greek letters and mathematical formulas. The focus is
on teaching and testing intuitive understanding of statistical concepts with
applications. This textbook is for an undergraduate or MBA introductory
statistics course and covers summary statistics, probability, hypothesis testing,
correlation, multiple regression, and includes custom Excel tools for
histograms and stepwise regression. You may download the data sets mentioned in the
book. If you are an instructor you can

A
Second Course in Probability is for undergraduate and
graduate students in statistics, mathematics, engineering, finance, and
actuarial science, and is a guided tour designed to give familiarity with
advanced topics in probability without having to wade through the exhaustive
coverage of the classic advanced probability theory books. Topics covered here include measure theory,
limit theorems, bounding probabilities and expectations, coupling and Stein's
method, martingales, Markov chains, renewal theory, and Brownian motion. No
other text covers all these advanced topics rigorously but at such an
accessible level; all you need to get started here is calculus and material
from a first undergraduate course in probability. Any other concepts required, such as the
definition of convergence, the Lebesgue integral, and of countable and
uncountable sets, are introduced as needed.
