Pirates, Peaches and P-values: 2016 edition (EN)


Our new edition covers everything that this book featured and much more! 🙂

Out of stock



The statistics revolution continues  in English!

With ninjas to train, umbrellas to test and dominoes to topple, this latest edition of Pirates, Peaches and P-values covers lots of new topics not yet featured in the first Dutch print. Backed by countless students already for its clarity, precision and light-heartedness, this book transcends the final frontier - language - to assist anyone in understanding statistics. Also in this edition, its holy trinity of building bridges prevails:
* Accomplished yet accessible: we explain everything.
* Mathematical yet material: we translate hyper-tangible examples to statistics and back.
* Entertaining but educational: laughter makes you learn and remember better.
So try it, and be conVinced. Still think you're a peach in statistics? You're about to become a pirate!


Crystal-clear setup
Thanks to an intuitive structure, you can hop aboard wherever you want. Pirates, Peaches and P-values will always tell you exactly what previous knowledge you require and will direct you to the relevant pages. Each chapter starts with an overview of the important concepts, test assumptions and action plans for an analysis (when applicable). It proceeds with an extensive theoretical elaboration, including footnotes and bonus paragraphs for whoever wishes to dig deeper. The exercises at the end test your new knowledge and expand it further. Not only does the whole allow for thorough learning, it also makes it easy to refresh your brain fast if you return later.

Hilarious examples
X and Y are not welcome here! With lively topics that range from agriculture to zombies, you will discover that statistics is everywhere – and that you can understand it through the eyes of the world. As hundreds of readers have remarked, it really helps!

Life-saving extras
* A flowchart telling you which test to use in each situation
* A step-by-step action plan for conducting statistical analyses
* Chapters that build bridges between different statistical techniques, showing you that they’re often the same
