About The Signal and the Noise by Nate Silver:

Drawing on groundbreaking research, The Signal and the Noise, written by the founder and editor-in-chief of FiveThirtyEight.com, examines how data has been used in prediction and forecasting, and how to find the true signals--the points that indicate that something will happen--amidst noisy and distracting data.

Addressing different fields of forecasting and predictions--from politics to earthquakes to poker--Silver explores the reasons why some things are easier to forecast, like the weather, while others are so difficult, such as terrorism.

From one of the country's smartest thinkers. The Signal and the Noise provides vital insights into how to think about probability and predictions on the economy, climate change, sports, and other subjects that impact our lives.

The summary and analysis in this book are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
