An interesting book for those that are starting to learn basic statistics for data analysis is Practical Statistics for Data Scientists by Peter Bruce and Andrew Bruce. It can be downloaded for free here. This book covers the basics of data exploratory analysis and frequentist statistical theory. Additionally, its final chapters cover classification, statistical machine learning, and unsupervised learning. I do like these last chapters as they are carefully written and easy to understand. The examples using R are very useful. In sum, this is a book worth reading for beginners. The last chapters can also be very helpful for those readers with more experience in data analysys.
