With excellent story-telling, the author has a knack of making statistics intuitive and fun. I took a statistics course 5+ years ago at my university and this book served as a great refresher on the basic concepts. I can also see this being helpful for anyone new to this field to get an intuitive feel of why we need statistics in the first place.

The focus of this book is on the "anxious" type. Covers many examples on the perspective of helpless "anxious" girls unknowingly attracted to "avoidant" boys (which gets annoying quickly). It is unfortunate that insights from this study (which could potentially be helpful) is conveyed this poorly. Lacks coverage in overcoming strategies for the "avoidant" styles.
