            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.

            The world is awash in bullshit, and we're drowning in it. Politicians are unconstrained by facts. Science is conducted by press release. Startup culture elevates bullshit to high art. These days, calling bullshit is a noble act. Based on their popular, eponymous, course at the Un...iversity of Washington, professors Carl Bergstrom and Jevin West catalogue bullshit in its many forms, explaining where bullshit arose in our evolutionary past and why it is ubiquitous today. Calling Bullshit offers readers the tools to see through the obfuscations, deliberate and careless, that dominate every realm of our lives. In this lively guide Bergstrom, a computational biologist, and West, a statistician, teach us that calling bullshit is crucial to a properly functioning social group, whether it be a circle of friends, a community of academics, or the citizenry of a nation.

            Data has reshaped industries around the world, from finance and medicine to sports. Law has trailed behind other industries, but is quickly following suit. For many years, law firms made important decisions-including very large decisions-based on limited experience (at best), or ...hunches (at worst). Data science is growing quickly in law firms, law schools, and corporate legal departments. In Data Analytics Applications in Law, leading practitioners examine the cutting edge of this trend, looking at new tools from our present, as well as the future of data analytics in law. Every aspect of the practice of law is changing, all the way from law school to litigation and appeal. Law firms are using data to decide whether to take on new clients, the range of likely outcomes, and to understand the parties and judges involved. They use science to draft and to understand contracts, comparing provisions against hundreds of thousands of similar examples. The use of data to improve lawyering should come as no surprise. The availability of more and more information online, combined with inexpensive storage space and massive computing power, suggest that these tools with not only proliferate, but that (following Moore's Law), they will become more effective and less expensive every year. Sophisticated clients not only prefer firms that use data analysis in their practice-they soon will demand it.
