The Signal and the Noise by Nate Silver

Just finished reading this book and would whole-heartedly recommend it. A very engaging read for anyone interested in Statistics, Data Analytics and Predictions.

Nate Silver is a statistician, writer, and founder of The New York Times political blog He was named one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People by Time magazine.” He predicted the results of last two US presidential Elections with amazing accuracy. It’s like he can know the future before it happens!

As the name of the book suggest, with plenty of examples from Weather Forecasting, Sports, Finance, Economics and Politics, Nate explains how he uses statistics and Bayesian Theory to pick up the signals that help him make those amazing predictions.
