Naked Statistics by Charles Wheelan
Scientific studies. Polling. Sports performance. Statistics are all around us. But if you’re like me, you barely have a laymen understanding of what the data actually means. Naked Statistics covers the essential statistic topics for today’s world. It will give you an idea of why the last presidential election polls were so wrong. And also provide reasoning that correlation does not imply causation. Statistics is a dry topic indeed, but the tone of the book made for a pleasurable reading.
