What are Pageviews and what are Unique Pageviews?

I am very confused and need simple clarification. Do pageviews consider multiple visits by the same user?  I am looking for the basic figure that indicates how many different people visited by site over a given period.  I do not want to include multiple visit from the same user.  Any basic help is appreciated.

Pageviews is the total number of pages viewed. Repeated views of a single page are counted.


Unique Pageviews is the number of sessions during which the specified page was viewed at least once. A unique pageview is counted for each page URL + page Title combination.
