    Description

    Thinking Statistically is the book that shows you how to think like a statistician, without worrying about formal statistical techniques. Along the way we learn how selection bias can explain why your boss doesn't know he sucks (even when everyone else does); how to use Bayes' theorem to decide if your partner is cheating on you; and why Mark Zuckerberg should never be used as an example for anything. See the world in a whole new light, and make better decisions and judgments without ever going near a t-test.

    Think. Think Statistically.

    Fun, witty, really well done

    This is probably the best value for a short work that is out there. Those advanced in statistics might find it obvious. But it is sprightly and fun, and confers the concepts quite well. The author-narrator has a pleasing voice and is obviously enjoying himself. Ladies and gentlemen, we have an authentic labor of love here. This may help the "medicine" of statistics go down better than anything else. And if you have always wished to know more of this topic, but hesitated, here is the place to easily hop in the pool, so to speak.

    Short but sweet (and impact full)

    Never thought I could learn so much with such a short book. Cuts through the fluff and teaches you statistical theories you can quickly apply to daily life.

    Nice simple intro to statistics.

    Title pretty much sums it up. Statistics are an important aspect of everyday life, just not in a personal level. I'm not sure how many people would actively engage is probabilistic thinking, no matter how much better their decisions would be. Even though I personally dislike math, statistics really makes me not want to. I can see it's usefulness, but the learning curve is pretty steep. I liked how simple the explanations were, they really helped understand the concepts, I was even able to relate them to some specific circumstances so that helped also.
    Overall, I think the book is worth the listen. For a more thorough application other input is necessary.

    Extremely boring

    It is a very short book but still extremely boring. Too short to make the subject any justice. The narration is dull and boring.

    Rereading or relistening

    I honestly don’t remember 99% of what was in this audiobook but I do have a constant positive feeling of respect towards it so I’m coming back for a second listen to actually study at versus listening to this while I drive since there’s no driving to anywhere now.

    a short, supplementary read

    well narrated and easy to follow. Not a comprehensive overview of all things statistics, but it helped me to remember some of the basic concepts.

    Witty, elegant introduction

    Witty, elegant introduction to using the principles of statistical reasoning in everyday life. Could double as an introduction to practical logic. Great examples: If you think statistics is dry, dull, and impenetrable, this one's for you. I did have to catch myself having to re-read sections to make certain that I wasn't missing the full argument. But it was all there, and in detail. The style and elegance were just a bit distracting. On the other hand, the smoothness and elegance also made the re-reading fun, and at times surprising. Bravo.

    Great book if you never heard of statistics.

    Dont get me wrong. Book was awesome. All terms explained with examples and it even included some formulas. Nice. Unfortunatelly all these are explained at any intro to statistics college class. Still you get all that in 1.5h book. Nice.

    A good book for biginners

    Because it is compact and essential, I think it is a good book for beginners.
