    Story

    Nate Silver built an innovative system for predicting baseball performance, predicted the 2008 election within a hair’s breadth, and became a national sensation as a blogger - all by the time he was 30. The New York Times now publishes FiveThirtyEight.com, where Silver is one of the nation’s most influential political forecasters. Drawing on his own groundbreaking work, Silver examines the world of prediction, investigating how we can distinguish a true signal from a universe of noisy data.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Signal and the Noise to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version; I'm a listener exclusively.


    What other book might you compare The Signal and the Noise to and why?

    Good to Great, Jim Collins: The idea, that research and analysis is key, before a conclusion can be drawn is a theme in these books.


    Have you listened to any of Mike Chamberlain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He has a very good reading voice. I'm not sure if I've listened to him before, and as a reader he doesn't stand out among the good readers, but he's definitely in that group.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This isn't that kind of book; there is no story for to film.


    Any additional comments?

    This was exciting to listen to; I really appreciate good analysis before conclusions are drawn, and I feel like Nate did a great job in applying his claimed principles throughout the book.
