Thomas K. Tiemann is Jefferson Pilot Professor of Economics at Elon University in North Carolina, USA. He earned an AB in Economics at Dartmouth College and a PhD at Vanderbilt University. He has been teaching basic business and economics statistics for over 30 years, and tries to take an intuitive approach, rather than a mathematical approach, when teaching statistics. He started working on this book 15 years ago, but got sidetracked by administrative duties. He hopes that this intuitive approach helps students around the world better understand the mysteries of statistics.
