A fascinating introduction, though the later chapters can become quite complex for those unfamiliar with traversing this field of research. However, taken as a whole, quite helpful given the ubiquitous nature of statistics.

Definitely piqued my interest in the subject. Provided a satisfying intellectual overview of the mathematical constructs and thinking that statisticians use while still only requiring a few days to read through and understand. A well done high-level overview.
