From: Maria Rees

Greetings from Venice, Italy

I should like to request permission to use the following material from
your website:
Misleading Statistics (from beginning to the section on Ranking Statistics)

The article would appear in a NEW edition of "English for Economics"
(Rees, Cafoscarina, 2000).

"English for Economics" has been (and will be) used by first- and
second-year students of Economics at the University of Venice Ca' Foscari.
Each unit of the book has a reading text followed by a variety of
comprehension, grammar, morphology and vocabulary exercises.

The publisher would be Libreria Editrice Cafoscarina . The price would be
in the
€12-15 range. The initial print run would probably be 1,200-1,500 copies.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need further information.
I look forward to hearing from you,

Best wishes
Maria Rees


I am happy to grant you permission to use the requested material from my
website in your book. In looking through the passage I noticed and
corrected a couple of grammar errors so hopefully the current version is
slightly improved over the original.

Thanks for your interest and good luck with your book!
