Analytics Stories (Wiley)

With the subtitle "Using Data to Make Good Things Happen",  this is an exploration of the application of analytics to real-world problems and situations. Covering fields as diverse as sports, finance, politics, healthcare, and business, Wayne L. Winston bridges the gap between the world of data analytics and the concrete problems it solves. The questions considered range from "What's wrong with the NFL QB rating?" to "What caused the Crash of 2008?"
