Silver built an innovative system for predicting baseball performance, predicted the 2008 election within a hair''s breadth, and became a national sensation as a blogger. Drawing on his own groundbreaking work, Silver examines the world of prediction.
From the Publisher:
The founder of challenges myths about predictions in subjects ranging from the financial market and weather to sports and politics, profiling the world of prediction to explain how readers can distinguish true signals from hype, in a report that also reveals the sources and societal costs of wrongful predictions.


"Mr. Silver's breezy style makes even the most difficult statistical material accessible. What is more, his arguments and examples are painstakingly researched--the book has 56 pages of densely printed footnotes." - Burton G. Malkiel 09/25/2012

"Balancing technical detail and thoughtful analysis with fluid prose, statistician Silver picks apart the many ways in which predictions in various fields have been flawed, while suggesting approaches that could improve the practice."
