Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of carrying only opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. When asked simple questions about global trends - why the world's population is increasing; how many young women go to school; how many of us live in poverty - we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.

Nate Silver built an innovative system for predicting baseball performance, predicted the 2008 election within a hair’s breadth, and became a national sensation as a blogger - all by the time he was 30. The New York Times now publishes FiveThirtyEight.com, where Silver is one of the nation’s most influential political forecasters. Drawing on his own groundbreaking work, Silver examines the world of prediction, investigating how we can distinguish a true signal from a universe of noisy data.

Detecting signals takes a Bayesian approach based on continously updating predictions with experience. The book takes you there step by step through examples. I like it because it's how I've been writing AI predictive algorithms for 30+ years including planning software that is based on forecasting.

Chances are, you are familiar with the name Walter Reed only because you have heard of the major army medical center named after him. Maybe you have heard of his name in general references related to yellow fever. Either way, there is so much more to this humble, hard-working man than most know. He wore many hats; husband, father, military officer, scientist, and doctor are just a few. His scientific achievements are benefiting humanity today.

What is reality? Ask yourself whether you can actually know the answer, much less be sure that you can know it, and you've begun to grapple with the metaphysical and epistemological quandaries that have occupied, teased, and tormented modern philosophy's greatest intellects since the dawn of modern science and a century before the Enlightenment.

En réponse au romantisme, poètes et écrivains du second XIXe siècle portent sur le monde réel un regard sensible mais désenchanté. Dès lors, tous les sujets sont possibles, aussi bien le beau que le laid. Baudelaire, Flaubert, Zola et bien d'autres, s'affi rment ainsi comme des écrivains modernes et opèrent un profond renouvellement de la création littéraire.
