Disappointing title

I caught a glimpse of a book in a library this morning and thought the title was “Statistics for People Who Think.” Sounds like a great book!

But the title was actually “Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics” which is far less interesting.

One thought on “Disappointing title

  1. The second title would be / would have been valuable to me. I decided in the 70s, in my UCLA days, not to go for a doctorate because I “knew” (sic) that I wouldn’t be able to learn statistics. Which is, yes, a bit different than hating statistics, but close enough for me to have chosen another, less captivating career path.
