Discover The World of Correlation And Causation
With this book you will:
Best of all:
Here's the book blurb:
Correlation is not causation. You know it and I know it, and yet we are constantly having to be reminded of it because we can’t seem to help but get it wrong.
How many times have you heard someone really smart say something like ‘wow, this correlation has a p-value of 0.000001 so A must be causing B…’?
It’s not our fault though – we’re only human. We seek explanation for patterns and events that happen around us, and if something defies logic, we try to find a reason why it might make sense. If something doesn’t add up, we make it up.
OK, so if correlation does not necessarily imply causation, there must be a reason for that, and there must be something that is causing what we observe.
That is what this book is all about.
