- "Statistics" by Freedman, Pisani, and Purves: http://www.amazon.com/Statistics-4th-David-Freedman/dp/03939... (but an old edition would be fine)

- Any of Wainer's books (the author of the original pdf)

(Added later): books that explain the history of statistical thought are surprisingly good, because they explain the context and the problems the statistics were originally meant to solve. I really enjoyed "the lady tasting tea" and I think I learned from it.
