'The first edition of Statistical Methods for Geography provided an excellent introduction to the statistical analysis of spatial data. The second edition is even better - providing more material on probability and on descriptive statistics as well as more exercises. I would recommend this strongly as a text for introductory statistics courses in geography. It is currently the best on the market by far' - A.
