Thanks. Can you recommend any statistics books to be safe?

http://www-bcf.usc.edu/~gareth/ISL/ is not an statistics book. its a statistical machine learning book.

"All of statistics" is really a great book if you have time work through he exercise.

I found this a really good book: http://www-bcf.usc.edu/~gareth/ISL/

"Introduction to probability" is amazing. It really set the bar for what an academic book could be https://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Probability-Chapman-Stat...

MacKay, "Information Theory, Inference, and Learning Algorithms" and taking the Bayesian Inference and Machine Learning path
