Rewarding ... David Spiegelhalter manages to make the figures side of sex stats seem as interesting as the sexual, which is quite a feat ... This is a clever, hugely readable book, sometimes titillating and occasionally astounding. -- James McConnachie * Sunday Times *
Yes. Yes. Yessssss. Finally: a book on statistics that the public will buy and want to read ... Full of gems ... Spiegelhalter has worked hard at this book. It would have been easy to have pulled out halfway through and done a quick and dirty job, but he is tenacious and goes at it for longer and harder than the average statistician ... A caring and careful book. In fact, I'd be tempted to recommend it to teenagers wanting to ask those embarrassing questions. -- Danny Dorling * Times Higher Education *
Eye-opening ... wryly enjoyable ... A book about statistics, even sexual statistics, may sound pretty dull. Spiegelhalter has managed to make his both lively and informative. -- Andrew Lynch * Sunday Business Post *
Fascinating stuff * Independent *
Eye-popping stuff ... Spiegelhalter's writing is erudite but witty, honest and personal. And the wonderful footnotes alone are worth the cover price. -- Isabel Berwick * Financial Times *
