Statistics book

  1. Jun 28, 2009 #1
    I need a statistics book to help me understand concepts like skewness and kurtosis.
    I don't need a really advanced book, just one that will hopefully give me an understanding about the topics and make me able to implement them on my own.
    I have very little background statistics or probability, but I have about a graduate level education in pure math (just to get an idea of where i'm at)

    Please recommend a book to me.

    I picked up the book by Kendall. Seems to be just what I need.
