quantitative literacy, statistical literacy


Spiegelhalter, David. 2019. The Art of Statistics: How to Learn from Data (New York, NY: Basic Books) 448 pp. ISBN 978-1541618510.

This short piece introduces readers to The Art of Statistics: How to Learn from Data, a new book by David Spiegelhalter. In this age of data, classic statistical courses can appear of limited relevance due to their focus on probability-based methodology. The book takes a modern approach to introducing the essential concepts of statistical science, avoiding mathematics and structured around real problems that data can help solve, many based on the author's own experience.
