  • A biochemist couldn t quite make it through this book, but close enoughThe kind of book that eats like a banana, 3 4 is really the perfect amount, then you get full of it.


  • This book was written in 1996 and there were 5.8 billion people in the world It is 2012 and now there are 7.8 billion people in the world This book was cool, because the author went through all the sections of the newspaper starting with the politics which he claims does not really tell you shit about truth upon headlines to get you to buy the paper ending his explanations with sports and entertainment People get fixated on words like Korupt, strikes, embezzlement, murder When you divide these e [...]


  • When my children were young we would watch nature programs on the television together, and I would teach then to ask How do they know that I taught them to expect that the answer would often be a vivid example of how much science can discover or discern or deduce, even from the scantest of clues and via the most devious paths I also taught them to expect that sometimes the answer would be They don t know , or They re guessing , or even That s what they want you to think, but it isn t actually tr [...]


  • I really enjoyed this work The author proves to the reader that math is not about numbers but about thinking and logic Covering a wide range of general examples, he brings home the concepts of probability, game theory voting, poltical territory , chaos economic forecasting, epidemics, markets , non linearity, logic, and the complexity horizon He also brings out the finer points regarding interpretation and use of analytical tools precision re recipes , anchoring, checking for reasonability, smal [...]


  • This book, as I probably should have realized, is largely comprised of Paulos s vague musings When he spends than 2 3 pages on a topic, it gets insightful, but he does that far too seldom There are plenty of good nuggets here, but the lazy format just doesn t hold up too many sections of Hey, here s an idea that I find moderately interesting, but I m not going to bother digging into it I appreciate why it isn t especially math y, but that limits some of his arguments Had he dropped a few of the [...]


  • I enjoyed this book quite a bit, though not as much as I enjoyed Paulos earlier Innumeracy He turns phrases beautifully and explains not so obvious mathematical phenomena very clearly For example, if you go up against a tennis player with whom you win 40 percent of your points, your chances of winning a match are only a paltry.05 percent yes, one twentieth of one percent Sound crazy The proof is on page 176 of the paperback edition My only complaint is that some of Paulos ideas just aren t flesh [...]


  • A fabulous read highly recommendedI have to say I really enjoy John Allen Paulo s style of writing His wry observations and insights are wonderful to behold on paper The book is somehow timeless, it is as useful and observant now as it was when written An easy recommendation to make.


  • I have rarely enjoyed or laughed out loud as much a non fiction book as much as I enjoyed A Mathematician Reads the Newspaper It was enjoyable both due to my background in mathematics and social psychology, and Paulos is a gifted storyteller The best part is that you don t need any scientific training to appreciate it A good read.





  • 51 percent of the vote results in 100 percent of the powerso, first off paulos is not reading a specific newspaper or debunking specific articles it s like he s reading the general theory of newspapers, or is recalling a lifetime of said readership, and then tying those hazy memories and basic journalistic practices to some math concepts he s got right there in front of him other words, the math is all very present but if u want explicitly named errors in recent stories, ur gonna have to go hun [...]


  • Paulos, J A 2013 A mathematician reads the newspaper New York Basic Books.What s the maximum number of yes no questions one must ask to determine any arbitrary number between 1 to 1,000,000 Eg is the number between x and y Is the number less than z Post any proof if feasible.The liar s paradox When the liar says, I m lying You buy 100kg of potatoes, and you re told they re 99% water After drying in the sun, they re now 98% water What s the mass of the potatoes now 4% of firearm deaths are accide [...]


  • The book is about 200 pages but has over 50 chapters So, each chapter reads sort of like a blog entry It was published in 1994, before blogs, so it made him money than simply blogging his thoughts now would Each chapter are his thoughts after reading particular articles in the newspaper and introduce various mathematical theories and statistical concepts that would add some much needed info to the articles.The author loves the newspaper but is also critical of journalists and publishers His ove [...]


  • La premisa del libro es muy buena los muchos errores matem ticos inocentes o no que se leen en las noticias de cualquier peri dico, desde los titulares nacionales e internacionales hasta las secciones de ocio y sociedad.Al contrario de lo que puede sugerir el t tulo, esto no es un curso de matem ticas ni un libro pensado para el especialista con un posgrado Es para ese lector o lectora com n y corriente que abre las hojas para informarse del mundo en el que vive Es para detectar c mo los n meros [...]


  • I m a bit chary of criticizing a guy who wrote a book as useful as Innumeracy Mathematical Illiteracy Ands Its Consequences Perhaps the polite thing would be to say, just read his other book instead Paulos attempts to discuss how a grasp of maths will allow you to understand better the world around you, such as it is presented in the newspaper In reality, this seems to be merely an attempt to capitalize on the success of that earlier work Is is 75 pages of meat with 125 pages of filler I m not s [...]


  • Paulos is a witty mathematician and makes excellent points in his analyses of newspapers focusing on the numbers, statistics, ignorance and misrepresentations Arranged as newspaper content, with politics and current topics first, followed by local news, lifestyles, science, and sports, he writes short articles with composite made up headlines to draw you in not any different than any newspaper Published in 1995, the topics and references are dated, but the message is not.I would be curious to as [...]


  • Applies basic mathematics to provide insights into the biases and misleading material in newspapers Each chapter provides a bite sized bit of knowledge about statistics and cognitive biases, though toward the end the information became repetitive Especially liked the sections about gerrymandering, and tax rates Also refreshing to see explanation of common cognitive biases.Overall, a good reminder that the news is, for the most part, first about entertainment, and then about disseminating informa [...]


  • Para el parox stico estilo period stico de nuestro pa s, la mayor ense anza de este libro es la denuncia que hace de esa tan fruct fera como nefasta alianza entre periodistas y abogados sobre todo aquellos que representan a personas que afirman haber sufrido perjuicios por culpa de productos, servicios o pol ticas defectuosas.Porque si bien seguramente buena parte de esas denuncias son justificadas, lo que Allen critica, y sustenta en l gica matem tica, es esa moraleja naif con que todos los dis [...]


  • A good book Paulos is funny and offers a treasure trove of examples from the contemporary news the mid 90s when he was writing that have a legitimate mathematical component as he puts it This book can be viewed as a follow up to his earlier book Innumeracy that furthers his case that the publics inability to grapple basic mathematical arguments has substantial social consequences.My only gripe is that, at times, he makes the typical mathematician s error of using a heavily oversimplified model t [...]


  • I loved Innumeracy and liked Beyond Numeracy, so I had high hopes for this book It was OK, but not spectacular There was too much wordiness and not enough math I was hoping for a detailed analysis with various examples of how math, statistics, graphs, etc are used to mislead or misinform newspaper readers Instead, this is a very cursory touch on various slightly math related political and economic concerns.


  • I love mathematics I love newspapers I also love facts, and separating those from fiction, and clarity, and healthy skeptical thinking, and a vigorous dose of humor This book satisfies all those interests What s fascinating is that each chapter could be exploded not into just into an entire book, but volumes of books His brevity though, keeps your interest, although he runs way too short on some very interesting topics only four pages on baseball Criminal Great fun I have to read of his work.


  • Molto interessante Finalmente un libro che parla di Matematica, nel vero senso della parola, e non di Aritmetica in troppi confondono e generalizzano le due discipline.Alcune parti del libro sono un po noiose, vuoi perch troppo discorsive o perch riferite al contesto degli USA Ma alcuni esempi sono molto azzeccati e alcuni concetti davvero illuminanti Un ottimo modo di spiegare perch dobbiamo diffidare dei giornali e leggerli con molta, moltissima attenzione L informazione rischia a volte di cau [...]


  • A useful little book, though a bit dated its primarily a bundling of a bunch of newspaper articles he s written in the past and past it is, all or most , before 2000 I think And I m so mathematically illiterate the maths examples he gave were often over my head but you don t actually need the maths to have at least a sense of what he s getting at, and generally they were points well made I ll need to re read it a few times though to really get a useful functional understanding of many of his poi [...]


  • Paulos is Professor Of Mathematics at Temple University, and a regular columnest for The Economist Magazine every section of a typical big city newspaper is dissected from a mathematicians s perspective politics, crime, environmental stories, as well as arts leisure, celebrity, and sportseven the book review section and obituaries a user friendly, and quirkily insightful approach demonstrates how mathematical naivete can put readers at a distinct disadvantage you can certainly put my name under [...]


  • Disappointing I read a small exerpt from this book in a statistics class once and found it enjoyable I thought it would be a fun and accessible look at how statistics are misused in the media Unfortunately, the description fun and accessible does not apply to the book on the whole Many sections of involved math well beyond my level of undestanding and others just seemed poorly organized to the point that I had no idea what point the author was making at any given time Too bad.


  • I nibbled my way through this thoughtful collection of articles by a mathematician Each chapter is a short contemplation of some aspect of news that one would find in the newspaper, and the author does not shy away from any subject His insightful remarks based on mathematics will make you think twice about the rationality of anything you read from any section of the newspaper Great food for thought


  • 2 3 stars, most of the stories are interesting Since I almost majored in mathematics I heard some of the math behind the stories before Since I did learn a few things from the book I bump up the rating to a solid 3 stars The writing is that of a mathematician that is for sure.Since reading some of John Allen Paulos recent books and working backwards is interesting to see how much well written his books are.


  • I was looking at this book for examples of critical thinking skills used reading the newspaper statistical analysis, correlation vs causation, recognizing fallacies in logic and Paulos provided them It wasn t as riveting as I was hoping but it is a bit dated 1995 That being said, many of his points about thinking and reasoning were still relevant I would love Paulos to update this May have to follow him on Twitter.


  • The author of Innumeracy Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Consequences finds references to numbers, math and statistics in most parts of the newspaper and finds many instances where they are misused or misunderstood He also offers ways for writers to get it right.
