Product description


Teems with eyebrow-raising numbers, which have been verified by the strongest statistical tools in academia's arsenal (Zoe Cormier BBC Focus 2015-04-02)

Rewarding ... David Spiegelhalter manages to make the figures side of sex stats seem as interesting as the sexual, which is quite a feat ... This is a clever, hugely readable book, sometimes titillating and occasionally astounding. (James McConnachie Sunday Times 2015-04-05)

Yes. Yes. Yessssss. Finally: a book on statistics that the public will buy and want to read ... Full of gems ... Spiegelhalter has worked hard at this book. It would have been easy to have pulled out halfway through and done a quick and dirty job, but he is tenacious and goes at it for longer and harder than the average statistician ... A caring and careful book. In fact, I'd be tempted to recommend it to teenagers wanting to ask those embarrassing questions. (Danny Dorling Times Higher Education 2015-06-11)

Eye-opening ... wryly enjoyable ... A book about statistics, even sexual statistics, may sound pretty dull. Spiegelhalter has managed to make his both lively and informative. (Andrew Lynch Sunday Business Post 2015-09-01)

Fascinating stuff (Independent 2015-11-12)

Eye-popping stuff ... Spiegelhalter's writing is erudite but witty, honest and personal. And the wonderful footnotes alone are worth the cover price. (Isabel Berwick Financial Times 2015-04-18)
