Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Statistics Taught through Fiction, edited by Małgorzata Mazurkiewicz and with contributions from Krzysztof Z. Górniak.

Statistics is present in our lives, whether we like it or not, as we are constantly surrounded by statistical data. Statistics takes several shapes, beginning with ordinary numbers and ending with different types of schemes, diagrams and tables, but its form, of course, doesn’t appeal to everyone, which is how the idea of this book arose, to bring the reader closer to the area of statistical issues. With the text’s plot and use of everyday language, it introduces heroes and a science-fiction world to present an easy-to-follow account of formulas, numbers and statistical symbols.

To read a full summary of the book and to read a 30-page sample extract, which includes the table of contents, please visit the following link:

Statistics Taught through Fiction can be purchased directly from Cambridge Scholars, through Amazon and other online retailers, or through our global network of distributors. Our partners include Bertram, Gardners, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, YBP, Inspirees and MHM Limited. An e-book version will be available for purchase through the Google Play store in due course.
