A few more reviews of the book by bloggers have trickled in, thankfully all positive.
From Claus at planetwater, a blog about "ground water, engineering, science, geo-statistics":
I really loved reading those stories. They are well written, I think well understandable for somebody who is not experienced or even trained in “statistical thinking”. Finally, a big plus is a longer than normal “conclusions” section, where Kaiser Fung tries to put the underlying basic thoughts of each story into almost all the other stories’ context.
See also Claus's post on "Magnitudes of Extreme Weather Events", which is his response to a topic in my book.
From backtesting, an anonymous financial blogger:
I really don’t do book reviews, but this is an exception. And I’m still in the middle of reading it, too... For folks who have inquisitive minds about why stuff is there and what happens, I suggest reading Fung’s book, which was recommended by a friend who also seems to be into understanding innocuous bits of circumstance.
From W. Chan, a senior at Stony Brook:
This is one of the best books I have ever read next to Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner... This book has opened my eyes to many more ideas of what may be behind my thoughts and it will help me think rationally according to statistics when making a decision in the future.
From RJTame, a stay-at-home dad:
Originally heard of this from reading Tom Peter's Twitter feed and it is well worth your time. Everyone instinctively knows the role of numbers in your life, but here you can delve deeper and get a much greater understanding which could change the way you live. Seriously. Check it out.
In addition to the Japanese version, Numbers Rule Your World will be coming out in Chinese and Korean.
Since I have many European readers, I hope they will translate it to French, German, Spanish, Italian, etc.
