Looking for a good book on statistics

Posted by Quintal on August 5, 2007, at 0:48:58

The problem I've always had with maths is that it's relatively meaningless so I tend to forget everything I've learned in a short space of time. My physics teacher said she thought my mathematical ability was fine, but I'm not so sure. I've developed quite a passion for statistical analysis with all this PubMed research I've been doing and I'd like to learn how to do things like meta-analysis properly, and also what all those funny statistical terms really mean. At present I can only divine their meaning from context so it would be helpful to have an easy-to-read manual or reference guide at hand.

Does anyone know of a such a document? I don't suppose there are many aimed at beginners? Maybe there's one on statistics in that 'For Dummys' series or something?
