“Numbersense: How to Use Big Data to Your Advantage,” by Kaiser Fung

by Travis Korte
'Numbersense,' by Kaiser Fung.

In Number Sense, author Kaiser Fung seeks to give nontechnical readers the background they need to understand how big data affects their everyday life, from college ranking to fantasy sports. He seeks to separate the good information from the bad given the extensive media attention “big data” has received, and offers advice on when to trust data “experts” and when to question what you hear. Fung is a statistician at NYU, and writes on the popular data visualization blog Junk Charts.
