            Every day in the news, we are confronted with a mind-bending range of statistics about the economy, health, unemployment and more, and this information overload has only increased in the wake of the big data revolution. But data does not speak for itself. A basic grasp of statist...ical literacy is more important than ever in order to think critically about the world. In Statistics: The Art of Learning from Data, David Spiegelhalter responds to the growing interest in data science by guiding the reader through the basic statistical principles we need in order not be misled by the numbers. He introduces the fundamental topics in modern statistics - such as data visualization, bias, variability, data-analytics, probability models, discovery, Bayesian inference, and reproducibility - without unnecessary technical detail or equations. Drawing on a range of intriguing contemporary examples and studies, Spiegelhalter uses real world issues to highlight the best (and worst) ways to approach statistical problems. Smart, accessible and packed with the essentials for students and statisticsbewildered readers alike, this book will give you the basic principles for how to derive knowledge from data.

            Is Innovation just an overused buzzword? A waste of time? A mere marketing ploy? Author Alex Goryachev has a simple, resounding response to such questions: No! The Fourth Industrial Revolution is driving change at an unprecedented pace, level, and intensity that is impacting b...usinesses across industries, not to mention our everyday lives. We are rapidly blurring the physical and the digital, transforming the way we live and, in some sense, what it even means to be human. Whether we run a startup or multinational, a nonprofit or academic institution, a city or a whole country, we need to embrace this change to not just survive but thrive under these new realities. In Fearless Innovation, Cisco's Managing Director of Innovation Strategy and Programs explores how, no matter their function, leaders and managers can cut through the noise to understand change and deliver real results. Goryachev's actionable, consistent, and timeless innovation principles offer a blueprint to driving growth, enacting change, increasing the bottom line, and creating clear measurable value. Featuring diverse case studies of some of today's most innovative organizations, historical observations, first-hand experience, and a look at where innovation is thriving, and why, this down-to-earth guide provides advice and clear steps on how to: Get teams to embrace innovation beyond empty slogans Focus on execution of innovation through leadership and strategy Measure the real effects of innovation to showcase ROI and attract investment Break down org silos by empowering effective, diverse, and inclusive teams Drive co-innovation through win-win ecosystem-wide partnerships Organize innovation teams and orchestrate outcomes by leveraging organizational DNA Communicate the value of innovation to differentiate ourselves from competition Written for any organization that wants to stay relevant in the 21st Century, and even beyond, Fearless Innovation offers a step-by-step guide for getti
