In this book, subtitled "How to Learn from Data", David Spiegelhalter shows how to apply statistical reasoning to real-world problems. Whether he's analyzing preventative medical screening or the terrible crime sprees of serial killers, Spiegelhalter shows how to clarify questions, assumptions, and expectations and, most importantly, how to interpret the answers we receive. The book combines expert insights with the enthusiasm of an aficionado, in what sets out to be the definitive guide to the power of data.
