From the Preface:
Barr, Diez, Cetinkaya-Rundel, and Dorazio wrote:This book may be downloaded as a free PDF at openintro.org.

We hope readers will take away three ideas from this book in addition to forming a foundation of statistical thinking and methods.

(1) Statistics is an applied field with a wide range of practical applications.
(2) You don’t have to be a math guru to learn from real, interesting data.
(3) Data is messy, and statistical tools are imperfect. But, when you understand the strengths and weaknesses of these tools, you can use them to learn about the real world.

More information is available at the book webpage.
