This book will show you how to think like a statistician, without worrying about formal statistical techniques. Along the way we’ll learn how selection bias can explain why your boss doesn’t know he sucks (even when everyone else does); how to use Bayes’ Theorem to decide if your partner is cheating on you; and why Mark Zuckerberg should never be used as an example for anything. See the world in a whole new light, and make better decisions and judgements without ever going near a t-test. Think. Think Statistically.

Praise for Thinking Statistically


Josh Kaufman
NYT Bestselling Author








"Thinking Statistically explains essential concepts in statistics with wit and flair. Instead of page after page of mathematical mumbo-jumbo, Uri Bram tells stories that clearly illustrate the core ideas. The math is there, but the illustrations make each formula easy to follow and remember."


John Haigh
Emeritus Reader Mathematics
University of Sussex






"This whimsical slim volume … uses simple examples to illustrate its points, largely eschews equations, and can be comfortably absorbed inside an hour. ‘Less is more’ is well exemplified in its forty-odd pages … just as literature enthusiasts will re-read favourite books, despite knowing the characters and plot inside-out, so readers can revisit this book to appreciate its messages, delivered with charm and good humour."


Brian Clegg

"This is a delightful little book … excellent both as providing a bit of understanding for those making use of statistical methods (it’s all too easy to just crank the handle without understanding what you are doing and thereby come up with the wrong results) and as an introduction for the general reader … a very readable little book."
