The Art of Statistics: How to Learn from Data (Basic Books)
Friday, 06 September 2019

In this book, well-known statistician David Spiegelhalter shows readers how to derive knowledge from raw data by focusing on the concepts and connections behind the math. Drawing on real world examples to introduce complex issues, he shows us how statistics can help us determine the luckiest passenger on the Titanic, whether a notorious serial killer could have been caught earlier, and if screening for ovarian cancer is beneficial. The book shows how anyone can think like a statistician, learning how to clarify questions, assumptions, and expectations when approaching a problem, and -- perhaps even more importantly -- how to responsibly interpret the answers we receive.
