I enjoy dipping into this collection of thoughtful interviews. The authors offer their five picks of the works that have most influenced them, introducing me to new concepts and authors and avenues to pursue, myself. Woody Allen reminded me that I also read S.J. Perelman as a child. One author recommended five enjoyable books about statistics, and I actually plan to read one. I plan to continue through some of the other collections in this series as well. Great kindle item.
