What a beautiful presentation!

Tangentially: I am really enjoying the book "All of Statistics" as a reference for better understanding things like histograms, kernel density functions, etc, and their parameters.


Aren't you refererring to "All of non-parametric statistics"? https://www.amazon.com/All-Nonparametric-Statistics-Springer... Either way I can't recommend these books enough, really opened my eyes to the inner workings of statistics in a rigorous yet accessible way.

Just ordered that one too :-).

I am actually most interested non-parametric statistics, especially to "reformulate" as many statistical tests as possible using a small number of robust primitives (like the bootstrap.) More pointers in that direction would be very welcome :-)

Tangent to a tangent: The other most enjoyable stats book I have found is "Statistical Modeling: A Fresh Approach" http://www.mosaic-web.org/go/StatisticalModeling/
