QC Chivers, David, Tom Chivers


A charming, practical and insightful guide. You might not even notice how much you’re learning – you’ll be too busy having fun

A vital plea to take statistics more seriously – the prose being as clear and elegant as the numbers

Reading this book is strongly correlated with not looking stupid. Highly recommended

An excellent guide to everyday statistics . . . the authors do a splendid job of stringing words together so smartly that even difficult concepts are explained and so understood with ease. [A] timely and lively book ― THE TIMES

Wonderfully written – incredibly readable. It should be made compulsory reading for everyone before they leave school

An erudite, enlightening guide to the numbers we read in the news – and why they are so often wrong. The authors make sense of dense material and offer engrossing insights into sampling bias, statistical significance and the dangers of believing the casual language used in newspapers ― INDEPENDENT
