The Best Math Teacher You Never Had: Charles Wheelan's "Brilliant" New Book
Stats is a "high caliber weapon," Wheelan says, and his book focuses on helping readers understand the numbers they see everyday. By making the examples interesting, the material comes alive. Not only do readers come away with more statistical know-how then they had before, but they also care about what they've learned. Wheelan employs a similar approach in his widely read "Naked Economics" column on Yahoo! and in his popular keynotes. He compiles all the top trends in economics, finance, and public policy, and makes them directly applicable to each audience. Wheelan makes numbers make sense—even to the most math-averse among us.
