Product description

Review

A very funny book ... this is one of those maths books that claims to be self-help, and on the evidence presented here, we are in dire need of it (Telegraph)

Praise for Joe, the Only Boy in the World:

'From this careful, serious book emerges a man with a quick wit and far-seeing eye for what makes life so peculiar ... Joe stands out as a work of rare enlightenment

(Seven)

A witty, insightful, educational and wholly original book - and a wonderful achievement. Read it! (Tim Harford, author of "The Undercover Economist" and presenter of "More or Less" on BBC Radio 4 2013-05-08)

Fascinating (John Harding Daily Mail 2013-06-14)

A fast-paced, whizz-bang style (Iain Finlayson The Times 2013-06-08)

Helping people make sense of the barrage of confusing (and often misrepresented) statistics that riddle every day is a noble goal. Making the process enjoyable is a real achievement. (The Economist 2013-06-22)

The statistics are presented with admirable lucidity, using an ingenious method devised by the authors, and may serve to reassure more neurotic readers ... Witty and illuminating, The Norm Chronicles is essential reading for anyone wanting to know whether they should try skydiving, or accept that third glass of wine (Orlando Bird Financial Times 2013-07-13)

Illuminating ... eye-catching ... a real achievement (The Economist 2013-06-22)

Book Description

A far from average book: the real story behind the statistics on risk, chance and choice.
