However much we want certainty in our lives, it feels as if we live in an uncertain and dangerous world. But are we guilty of wildly exaggerating the chances of some unwanted event happening to us? Are we misled by our ignorance of the reality of risk?
Far too many of us, argues Gerd Gigerenzer, are hampered by our own innumeracy, while statistics are often presented to us in highly confusing ways. With real world examples, such as the incidence of errors in tests for breast cancer or HIV, DNA fingerprinting, and the manipulation of statistics for evidence in court, he shows that our difficulty in thinking about numbers can easily be overcome.
This essential book illustrates how, with a few simple techniques, we can learn to uncloud our minds, demand helpfully presented information and turn ignorance into insight.

Every business area relies on an understanding of statistics to succeed. Statistics for Business and Economics by Carlos Cortinhas and Ken Black shows students that the proper application of statistics in the business world goes hand-in-hand with good decision making. Every statistical tool presented in this book has a business application set in a global context and the many learning features and easy to use structure will engage and reassure each business statistic student. Featuring a strong focus on European cases, data and scenarios throughout, Statistics for Business and Economics provides: *Decision Dilemma each chapter opens with a short case describing a real company or business situation, that raises questions to be answered using techniques presented in the chapter. Answers and explanations are given at the end of the chapter bringing closure. Each chapter uses different cases. *Ethical Considerations box underscores the potential misuse of statistics by discussing such topics as lying with statistics, failing to meet statistical assumptions, failing to include pertinent information, and other matters of principle. * Most cases, data and scenarios are based on real information students will recognise and relate to such as Caffe Nero, Nando s, Raleigh, online shopping, European Banks and more.
