Ron Larson is a PhD in mathematics from the University of Colorado. He is a well known professor of mathematics at the Penn State University. He had written a number of books on mathematics starting from school level to calculus ones. Betsy Farber on the other hand is a Master in mathematics from the College of New Jersey. She is also a professor in Community College in Newton, Pennsylvania and teaches mathematics at all levels. Her interest lies in developing new ways to make statistics more interesting and relevant to the students.

The book contains the following:

• Data collection and classification and Descriptive Statistics through graphical representation, measures of central tendency, dispersion and position.

• Basic concepts of probability, different types of distributions-discrete and continuous.

• Statistical inference through confidence interval and hypothesis of one and two sample of mean, proportion and variance etc.

• Some appendices are also there where different types of tables are given such as normal table, binomial, poisson, t, F, different critical values of non parametric tests, normal probability graphs etc. are provided in the book.

• Answers to the exercises are also been given.
