The Theory That Would Not Die
 How Bayes' Rule Cracked the Enigma Code, Hunted Down Russian Submarines, and Emerged Triumphant from Two Centuries of Controversy
 By: Sharon Bertsch McGrayne
 Narrated by: Laural Merlington
 Length: 11 hrs and 51 mins
 Unabridged

Overall

Performance

Story
Bayes' rule appears to be a straightforward, oneline theorem: by updating our initial beliefs with objective new information, we get a new and improved belief. To its adherents, it is an elegant statement about learning from experience. To its opponents, it is subjectivity run amok. Sharon Bertsch McGrayne here explores this controversial theorem and the human obsessions surrounding it.

Statistics are everywhere, as integral to science as they are to business, and in the popular media hundreds of times a day. In this age of big data, a basic grasp of statistical literacy is more important than ever if we want to separate the fact from the fiction, the ostentatious embellishments from the raw evidence  and even more so if we hope to participate in the future, rather than being simple bystanders.

Story
In the 18th century, the British minister and mathematician Thomas Bayes devised a theorem that allowed him to assign probabilities to events that had never happened before. It languished in obscurity for centuries until computers came along and made it easy to crunch the numbers. Now, as the foundation of big data, Bayes's formula has become a linchpin of the digital economy. But here's where things get interesting: Bayes's theorem can also be used to lay odds on the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence, and on the biggest question of all: how long will humanity survive?


Finally an updated collection & we're all doomed.

Story
Bayes theorem is a method that is used to solve conditional probability. Also called Bayes theory, this theorem can accurately give you the actual probability of an event, given information about the test. This audiobook is loaded with interactive examples on Bayes theorem. Bayes theorem is also called Bayes rule or Bayes formula and is used in different industries including spam filters and drug testing, due to the fact that it is vital to have a systematic and proven way to find the estimated probability when new data is available.

A good book may have the power to change the way we see the world, but a great book actually becomes part of our daily consciousness, pervading our thinking to the point that we take it for granted, and we forget how provocative and challenging its ideas once were  and still are. The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is that kind of book.

We would like to believe we can know things for certain. We want to be able to figure out who will win an election, if the stock market will crash, or if a suspect definitely committed a crime. But the odds are not in our favor. Life is full of uncertainty  indeed, scientific advances indicate that the universe might be fundamentally inexact  and humans are terrible at guessing. When asked to predict the outcome of a chance event, we are almost always wrong.

Philosophers have long puzzled over the nature of space, time, and matter. These inquiries led to the flowering of physics with the Scientific Revolution in the 17th century. Since then, the spectacular success of modern physics might appear to have made philosophy irrelevant. But new theories have created a new range of philosophical concerns: What is the shape of space? Is time travel possible? Is there a grand unified theory that unites all of physics?

Everyone would benefit from seeing further into the future, whether buying stocks, crafting policy, launching a new product, or simply planning the week's meals. Unfortunately, people tend to be terrible forecasters. As Wharton professor Philip Tetlock showed in a landmark 2005 study, even experts' predictions are only slightly better than chance. However, an important and underreported conclusion of that study was that some experts do have real foresight.

Visionary physicist Geoffrey West is a pioneer in the field of complexity science, the science of emergent systems and networks. The term complexity can be misleading, however, because what makes West's discoveries so beautiful is that he has found an underlying simplicity that unites the seemingly complex and diverse phenomena of living systems, including our bodies, our cities, and our businesses.

Publisher's Summary
Perfect for beginners wanting to learn about Bayes Theorem through real examples!
What if you could quickly and easily learn Bayesian data analysis without complex textbooks and statistics classes?
Imagine being able to apply your newly learned theory to real life situations!
In this audiobook, you will get:
 A basic introduction to Bayes Theorem (with examples)  the initial introduction demonstrates how Bayesian data analysis works when you have a single new piece of data to update initial probabilities.
 Adding new data and updating probabilities  takes the above example and looks at what happens if we have multiple pieces of data instead of a single piece.
 Bayes Theorem terminology  the formal names for the different parts of the Bayes Theorem equation, and how it all comes together for an easier overall understanding.
 How to deal with data errors  in a real life situation, it is unlikely that your data will be errorfree. This section shows you how to deal with those errors and still get accurate probability estimates.
 Arthur's personal email address for unlimited customer support if you have any questions.
 And much, much more....
If you are a person that learns by example, then this audiobook is perfect for you! It is a very important topic in a wide range of industries  so dive in to get a deep understanding!

Not what the title promises
I couldn’t be sure how much of the inaccessibility and opaqueness of this presentation was in the narration and how much in the text itself, but most likely it is both. The writing seems unedited and vague. I was hoping for examples of applying the formula in the specific solution of real world situations, but mostly heard that one could do so. The errors in grammar, sentence structure, and word usage were distracting. However it does provide the formula and define the terms. That part only takes a few minutes, but if that is your goal, you will find that here.
