I'm really interested in this, but wish someone wrote a matching "how to learn stats". This seems aimed at people who already have stats knowledge and experience with R, so there's lots of "you know what I'm talking about" assumptions.

I recommend The Cartoon Guide to Statistics, as a good way to get into stats. I've taught a class using it work a number of times, and it makes a great first exposure. The equations are there, explained in a really nice way.


That seems like it's _always_ how it is with stats... I find it very easy to get lost in stats presentations and articles with my STAT100-esque-understanding of simple random vars/distributions/PMF+PDFs
