Greetings, I have lost all faith in Amazon recommendations, therefore I seek recommendations from the folks here re: recommended books for learning statistics / probabilistic reasoning for a non-academic learner. My interest is in practical applications, mostly because of Charlie Munger's assertion that if you don't understand permutations and combinations, you're like a one-legged man in an ass-kciking contest. There does seem to be a correlation between people who are good at numbers (either innately, or trained into it) and who are successful at business.
My aging brain is slowly shriveling into a raisin, so nothing too heavy please. I am already familiar with popular works such as Paulos' Innumeracy, the Manga Guide to Statistics (too cute I can't concentrate on the topics), Secrets of Mental Math, and Taleb's Fooled by Randomness. Danke schoen.
