This time in the Science for Everyone series we come to a text on Statistics, this one is named *Yes, No Or Maybe* and is written by *Ya. I Khurgin*.

This is what the back cover of the book says:

Professor Yakov Khurgin is known for his works in applied mathematics, cybernetics, industrial applications of mathematics. Besides he is an imaginative popularizer of science. His book Do You Say Mathematics? has been passed through two editions in Russian and has been translated into English. His new book Yes, No or Maybe is a readable introduction to the frontiers of statistics and experiment design. The book is written in a lovely language and contains many practical examples.

The book was translated from the Russian by *Alexander Repyev* and was published first by Mir in 1985. The book mentioned in the back cover * Do You Say Mathematics?* is an amazing one, which we will get when we will start the mathematics series!
