Recommend a good statistics/probability book

  1. May 10, 2014 #1
    I have always been fascinated by probability and statistics for a reason I do not know. However, when I was in college I did information theory where probability theory is extensive. That was some 3 years back. For some reason I seem to have forgotten most of it mainly because of the lack of intuition behind the theories.
    I'm looking to acquire a strong foundation for probability/statistics by intuition to finally entrench this subject in my head. The book should also include advanced topics like 2-D random variables, queuing theory etc.
    Please suggest a good book with a proclivity to intuition.

    "Intuitive" is a subjective matter. What math books have you seen that you consider intuitive?

    Well, the time I was studying DE, I had a book by Pollard and Tennebaum and it was a beauty because the authors were deliberately taking their time to explain. As you might know, you can teach someone DE in a day or a month and the authors chose the month plan.
