Thinking in Numbers

We were delighted to have Edmund J Sutcliffe from Guru Team present a talk this morning on Thinking in Numbers – An Introduction to Critical Thinking with Statistics.  An informative presentation with the passion for the topic obvious in both the presenter and interactions from listeners.  We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.  We have compiled a list of references and further reading material that may be of interest to you.
