              Every day in the news, we are confronted with a mind-bending range of statistics about the economy, health, unemployment and more, and this information overload has only increased in the wake of the big data revolution. But data does not speak for itself. A basic grasp of statist...ical literacy is more important than ever in order to think critically about the world. In Statistics: The Art of Learning from Data, David Spiegelhalter responds to the growing interest in data science by guiding the reader through the basic statistical principles we need in order not be misled by the numbers. He introduces the fundamental topics in modern statistics - such as data visualization, bias, variability, data-analytics, probability models, discovery, Bayesian inference, and reproducibility - without unnecessary technical detail or equations. Drawing on a range of intriguing contemporary examples and studies, Spiegelhalter uses real world issues to highlight the best (and worst) ways to approach statistical problems. Smart, accessible and packed with the essentials for students and statisticsbewildered readers alike, this book will give you the basic principles for how to derive knowledge from data.

              The world is awash in bullshit, and we're drowning in it. Politicians are unconstrained by facts. Science is conducted by press release. Startup culture elevates bullshit to high art. These days, calling bullshit is a noble act. Based on their popular, eponymous, course at the Un...iversity of Washington, professors Carl Bergstrom and Jevin West catalogue bullshit in its many forms, explaining where bullshit arose in our evolutionary past and why it is ubiquitous today. Calling Bullshit offers readers the tools to see through the obfuscations, deliberate and careless, that dominate every realm of our lives. In this lively guide Bergstrom, a computational biologist, and West, a statistician, teach us that calling bullshit is crucial to a properly functioning social group, whether it be a circle of friends, a community of academics, or the citizenry of a nation.

              'Correlation does not imply causation.' This mantra was invoked by scientists for decades in order to avoid taking positions as to whether one thing caused another, such as smoking and cancer and carbon dioxide and global warming. But today, that taboo is dead. The causal revolut...ion, sparked by world-renowned computer scientist Judea Pearl and his colleagues, has cut through a century of confusion and placed cause and effect on a firm scientific basis. Now, Pearl and science journalist Dana Mackenzie explain causal thinking to general readers for the first time, showing how it allows us to explore the world that is and the worlds that could have been. It is the essence of human and artificial intelligence. And just as Pearl's discoveries have enabled machines to think better, The Book of Why explains how we can think better.
