Stripping the Dread From the DataBook - 2013
From the bestselling author of "Naked Economics" comes "Naked Statistics," in which Charles Wheelan strips away the arcane and technical details to get at the underlying intuition so key to understanding the power of statistical concepts. How can we catch schools that cheat on standardized tests? How does Netflix know which movies you'll like? What's causing the rising incidence of autism? Statistics can be used to tackle these questions and others that are incredibly important to us today.
