Visual Statistics simplifies complex and advanced statistical methods for those who have no or little statistical education. By using animated graphics, the book provides essential tools for analyzing statistical data and exploring the concepts of visual statistics. The three authors created a free website called "Using ViSta: The Visual Statistics System" where users can create interactive visualizations from relevant mathematical statistics. An excellent reference for understanding and analyzing statistics, “Visual Statistics” also introduces topics like history of statistical graphics, graphics-based statistical interfaces and visualization for exploring univariate data.
