Part of my role long ago was to explain analytics to executives. That included many things, from analytical methods, predictive systems to statistics. So I was always on the lookout for good introductory books I could hand out. Appropriately marked up and bookmarked to the right sections. Just now making my way through one such book: Naked Statistics: Stripping the Dread from the Data by Charles Wheelan. No equations, well done descriptions and examples of the reason and cautions for doing the statistics involved. So far nicely done.
