matthew_p's review against another edition

Go to review page


I love this book. The authors have presented a complex subject in an articulate, entertaining, and amazingly clear fashion. Especially in terms of media coverage, it's almost impossible to understand what me mean when we talk about risk. Reading "The Norm Chronicles" will help. I'd even go so far as to recommend this book as the basis for a mandatory high school class to improve risk probability literacy, since so many life decisions are informed by this kind of data.

Highly recommended, I'm willing to loan this out locally (and to anyone who is likely to return it elsewhere) since it's a UK publication and (as far as I can tell) not yet commercially available in the U.S.

Interesting mix of story telling and musings on statistics.
