Histoire
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.

Histoire
All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades.

The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won't create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. It's easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1.

Factfulness: The stressreducing habit of carrying only opinions for which you have strong supporting facts.

So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.

Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on 12 years of pioneering research, Dr. Brené Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage. Brown explains how vulnerability is both the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief, and disappointment, and the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, empathy, innovation, and creativity.

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike?

Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.

Histoire
Why do we do the things we do? More than a decade in the making, this gamechanging book is Robert Sapolsky's genreshattering attempt to answer that question as fully as perhaps only he could, looking at it from every angle. Sapolsky's storytelling concept is delightful, but it also has a powerful intrinsic logic: He starts by looking at the factors that bear on a person's reaction in the precise moment a behavior occurs and then hops back in time from there in stages, ultimately ending up at the deep history of our species and its evolutionary legacy.

Plus riche que je ne le croyais

Description
Audie Award Finalist, Business/Educational, 2014
Once considered tedious, the field of statistics is rapidly evolving into a discipline Hal Varian, chief economist at Google, has actually called "sexy". From batting averages and political polls to game shows and medical research, the realworld application of statistics continues to grow by leaps and bounds. How can we catch schools that cheat on standardized tests? How does Netflix know which movies you'll like? What is causing the rising incidence of autism? As bestselling author Charles Wheelan shows us in Naked Statistics, the right data and a few wellchosen statistical tools can help us answer these questions and more.
For those who slept through Stats 101, this book is a lifesaver. Wheelan strips away the arcane and technical details and focuses on the underlying intuition that drives statistical analysis. He clarifies key concepts such as inference, correlation, and regression analysis, reveals how biased or careless parties can manipulate or misrepresent data, and shows us how brilliant and creative researchers are exploiting the valuable data from natural experiments to tackle thorny questions.
You’ll encounter clever Schlitz Beer marketers leveraging basic probability, an International Sausage Festival illuminating the tenets of the central limit theorem, and a headscratching choice from the famous game show Let’s Make a Deal  and you’ll come away with insights each time. With the wit, accessibility, and sheer fun that turned Naked Economics into a best seller, Wheelan defies the odds yet again by bringing another essential, formerly unglamorous discipline to life.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Basic, but very well explained
This is a very good entry point (or refresher) for statistics. The author obviously invested time in putting together clear and simple examples. More advanced stats people might be disappointed. I like this better than another broadaudience statistics book, "The Signal and the Noise" by Nate Silver. For me, the explanations here are clearer and the concepts flow better.

Statistics is like a high caliber gun, very useful
This book will not teach you the mathematics behind statistics. This book is about making you understand what you are doing when you are doing statistics. Thus it is a great complement to a university course where you might learn how to plug in numbers in SPSS or MATLAB and get a pvalue but don't really understand the assumptions involved and the potential pitfalls that must be considered.
Though I have studied some statistics at university level this book still provided a fresh valuable perspective on many statistical issues. It also gives examples of many, often costly mistakes scientists made in the past using statistics.
The analogy I used in the title (taken from this book), really captures an important aspect of statistics. If used properly statistics can tell us if a medication, or a certain policy is effective. If used improperly, it can lead to erroneous medical advice with fatal consequences, in the literal sense.
I would recommend this book if you are taking statistics but often don’t know what you are really doing or how what you are doing relates to real life issues. Alternatively, this book can also be read by people who don’t know any statistics but want to understand what it is all about without having to learn to do the actual math. If you are already an advanced student in statistics and know what you are doing (and know what not to do), then this book might not be for you.

Starts well then becomes nonAudible
I love statistics and I am comfortable with equations and numbers so maybe this is just not the right book for me. The early chapters on mean, median and mode were great, even standard deviation, but then it got a bit tedious. There was no associated PDF and no ebook companion on Audible, but lots of equations read out verbally like; “S divided by the square root of sixty two equals thirty six over seven point nine or four point six. The difference between the sample mean of one hundred and ninety four and the population mean of one hundred and sixty two is thirty two pounds or well more than three standard errors”. I love equations, but I found this stuff tedious in Audible format (thus nonAudible).
I particularly did not like the presentation of reversion to the mean. Many people misunderstand this topic, and Wheelan’s description did not seem to help. The important thing to grasp is that if you first flip ten tails then need to guess the total number of tails after a hundred flips (ninety more flips) you should guess 55 tails NOT 50 tails. Wheelan does not make any misstatements in the section, but it seemed to me, the section leaves the incorrect impression to the uninitiated.
I generally dislike throwing in Latin for no good reason. Wheelan introduces then repeatedly uses “ceteris paribus” meaning with other things remaining the same. Why use the Latin?
The author also seems to gloss over some of the deep weaknesses of statistics. One of the key weaknesses of statistics is the world sometimes changes in wildly unexpected ways. Using statistics to make predictions about such a changing world is fraught with risk.
The narration was very good both clear, expressive and lively.

Excellent Round the World Encapsulation of Stats
What was one of the most memorable moments of Naked Statistics?
Wheelan's treatment of the Central Limit Theorem was well thought out and expertly illustrated. For most readers this will be a rehash but a welcome rehash as it is one of the most important concepts in all of statistics.
What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?
The reader had a very deliberate style. You can tell he took great pains to convey and reinforce the message. Mr Davis was easily one of the best readers I've had the chance to listen to on Audible.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Statistics...made refreshing
Any additional comments?
Every manager and data analyst worth their salt should take the time to listen to this book. There is solid substance on offer here without the typically lengthy historical rehashes.

He did a great job making a very complex subject understandable in audio format. I did have to go back to a couple of topics and listen again, but that is just the nature of the subject. I think I did learn a few new things.

Any additional comments?
If I were dictator, I would force Charles Wheelan to sit in a cell and write until he had completed a volume like this for every branch of mathematics. I am a numbersphobe but also a graduate student in political science who understood NOTHING about statistics when I came out of not my first  but my second methods course. I learned more by listening to this book than I deed in two years of courses. It is awesome. I would encourage anyone who wants to know about statistics but thinks what you are learning in a statistics class is impossible and not intuitive (which is how I felt) to listen/read this book. It brings clarity to all. Thank you Mr. Wheelan!

A little understanding can be worse than no unders
Part of my job is dealing with statistics for program evaluation for a nonprofit. So I have to think about how to accurately look at statistics quite frequently.
Naked Statistics is a very good introduction to the proper use (and lots of examples of improper use) of statistics. This is intended for the average person and while it includes a little bit of math, the main focus is trying to help the reader develop an intuition for how statistics are supposed to work and be used and not really explain the math behind how they work.
What is particularly useful is the large number of relevant examples. Wheelan discusses Netflix recommendations, political polling, medical research, probability using lottery and other gambling games and a many other areas where statistics are commonly used, which in our world is almost everything area of life.
In our technocratic world, and one where advocacy groups often misuse statistics, it is very important that everyone have a basic understanding of statistics. I have read several other intro to statistics books like this to particularly remind myself how statistics are often misused. This is probably the best one I have read, both because of the relevant examples and because of the frequent use of humor.
It probably could have been cut a little bit, but I read the most recent edition that was updated last year and includes a number of up to date examples from recent economics, politics and technology.
I listened to the audiobook version and it was very well done, but there were several places that charts or graph would have made it easier to follow. There was an associated PDF with the audiobook, but I listen to audiobook when I often can’t spend time looking at a PDF. There were only a couple places where I thought it mattered (and with most of them I knew what was trying to be explained), but it is something to pay attention to if you have less experience with statistics.

Very Well Written
Would you consider the audio edition of Naked Statistics to be better than the print version?
I think this would be better in print. There were many formulas and references to figures that, while well described, don't really transfer well to audio.
Any additional comments?
If you've taken introductory statistics, this book is almost entirely review. But it did help to clear up a couple of concepts that I never fully grasped. There are also a few interesting facts thrown in.
If you've never taken statistics, everything is explained very clearly and in an interesting way.

Entertaining with statistics
I enjoyed the author's humor and the narrator's ability to deliver that humor. This book's description of the power and misuses of statistics is similar to books like, 'The drunkards walk' and Nate Silver's "The signal and the noise". I wish I would have discovered 'Naked Statistics" first. Many of the examples and stories I had already heard in the book's I have mentioned, however the author delivers them in a much more humorous way. I could not finish the book, and this is no way due to the fault of the author or the narrator, it's only due to the fact that I had already heard the information.
