Reviews summary

He will often present a very big theoretical claim, which is difficult to grapple with, as some of the statistical analysis is non-intuitive

Nate silver is a perfect person to write a book on this subject, as he has gotten famous for not only understanding the rock hard quantitative analysis that underlies the field, but being able to explain it to a more general audience

This is the approach that he sticks to with this book
