Useful insights for daily life, 28 Dec. 2010
At some point in your life you may have read too many popular science books. In that case, stop reading them. Except for the "Tiger that isn't", because this book is more than a book that presents statistics in a popular way. Without the use of any formula this books gives you thorough insights in how to interpret statistical statements that you may encouter in daily life. Anyone who reads a newspaper will find this book useful.
You don't need to be a statistician to read this book. At the same time, even those who studied statistics will appreciate the many interesting examples and the way the author looks at them.
Many popular science books are fun to read but don't give a real understanding of the theory that is behind it. These books are in my opinion unsatisfactory. But "The Tiger that isn't" isn't.
