This English translation of a b&w Japanese cartoon guide to statistics, co-published with Ohmsha Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan, retains its authentic Japanese flavor. The book follows the adventures of two high school girls and their teacher as he teaches them statistics using real-life examples such as how to calculate the standard deviation of bowling scores, how to graph ramen noodle prices on a histogram, and how to calculate Cramer's coefficient to determine how boys and girls prefer to be asked out. Each cartoon chapter includes a text explanation, worked examples, concept summaries, exercises, and answers. The publisher plans eight Manga Guide titles by the end of 2009, covering scientific and technical subjects such as calculus, physics, and molecular biology, with each guide written by a scientist or mathematician and illustrated by a professional manga artist and scenario writer. Author Takahashi is a technical writer. Information on the artist is not given. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
