    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 recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Thought provoking as you listen to pundits and realize they don't really know what they are forecast or predicting.

    The author used is money ball type experience and brings that analysis to examples range from politics to weather to hurricanes and earthquakes.


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

    no


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

    boring - or a documentary ;)

    We will soon be able to meet and exceed the basic needs of every man, woman, and child on the planet. Abundance for all is within our grasp. This bold, contrarian view, backed up by exhaustive research, introduces our near-term future, where exponentially growing technologies and three other powerful forces are conspiring to better the lives of billions of people. This book is an antidote to pessimism by tech-entrepreneur-turned-philanthropist Peter H. Diamandis and award-winning science writer Steven Kotler.

    Ryan says: "A catalog of positive innovations on the horizon"

    If you could sum up Abundance in three words, what would they be?

    The book was great - though dragged a bit in the middle it finished strong.
