Read this book back in 1982. Found an old copy this week. Will give it another shot.
The book seems to get a strange spectrum of reviews from love it to hate it. Can't seem to find much else about it online.
I do remember from 30 years ago being fascinated with some of the insights. The possibility that Cadillacs replaced dinosaurs, and other such imagery.
This was an easy quick read. Read it complete on the train in two hours. If you ever had a statistics class, then read it. My statistics was so long ago, but the book was still easy to grasp. It is not a in depth review of mathematics of statistics, but puts the concepts back in your head.
Found this book by accident. An interesting and easy read. So far through a couple chapters and it has been a good review in how to think mathematically without too much reliance on equations.
