An excellent book and the best for our purposes (introductory statistics for business students who, on the whole, do not like 'maths')' – Geoffrey Pugh, Staffordshire, UK
'Taylor has an approach which can be adopted to teaching the essentials of business stats to a population who would prefer not to employ and engage with this type of academic challenge.' – Charles Leatherbarrow, Wolverhampton, UK
