5.0 out of 5 stars I liked Uri's First Book - Thinking Statistically, 3 Nov. 2011
Uri Bram's first book - Thinking Statistically is a happy 2 hour read with just a nod to the dreaded equation but a big effort to entertain and make the activity of thinking sensibly, humourous and even funny. Uri uses examples to illustrate his 3 main points and tries to guide you through assessing liklihood and dare I say truth from the mis-use of statistics and the tragedy it can bring in the wrong hands. That said - is it sexy ? Probably just "cool". Dan Jacoby

5.0 out of 5 stars Defying Gravity, 3 July 2011
Defying Gravity is a worthwhile, easy and fast-read. A unique concept; to tell a story where each chapter takes you through the stages of bringing a new business idea to life in the competitive real-world but through Tony's life and struggle. The hurdles and barriers are true-life and every new initiative has a different balance of negative forces that seek to defeat you. Common to all and particularly true is the trade off that Tony's wrestles with; his all-consuming passion to make a success of his new concept versus keeping one's family on-side so that relationships survive, when he's never available. We've all been through that one and some relationships don't come out the other side. The added value is that the authors summarise at the end of each chapter and focus you on how to deliver success, step-by-step. If you're in the business of bringing the new to life then this is the book to both motivate you to keep going but also with relevant thinking that would be good to take on board.
