After having read the first half of Introduction to Statistics and Data Analysis by Peck and Olsen, I must say that the book is complete garbage.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does anyone know any good books on intro statistics that provides proofs for its theorems and the axioms of probability? It should be focused more on theory than on application. I don't mind if it uses any calculus.

Thanks!
