Slashdot has a review of “The Manga Guide to Statistics”. Here is a snippet:
The story is silly and sets up some humorous examples of how to use statistics. Ramen noodle prices get graphed, Rui looks at grading on a curve and explores why her and a class mate get different grades for identical scores. Cramer’s coefficient is used to examine how boys and girls prefer to be asked out. I thought that this was helpful not only because it helps to keep the readers interest but because it also moves the problems from the abstract to more concrete applications.
I haven’t seen the book, but I like the tagline: “Statistics with heart-pounding excitement!”
