cognition, decision-making, numeracy, persuasion
In Innumeracy in the Wild (Oxford University Press, 2020), Ellen Peters, a researcher in decision science, persuasively argues that numeracy skills, numeric confidence, and our intuitive sense for numbers impact our lifelong outcomes in health and wellbeing. Peters draws from research and real-world examples to show how daily life for innumerate people is different from that of numerate people and makes practical recommendations on improving how we communicate numerical information.
