Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Shaun Gallagher's website Correlated.org:

“We predict this site will launch a thousand graduate theses"
–Freakonomics

"Help further the cause of science!"
—Pee-wee Herman
 
"A totally trustworthy-looking website"
—Cracked.com
 
"Hysterical site"
—Dean Karlan, Yale Professor of Economics
 
"Pretty much the best website ever."
—Facebook analytics manager Alex Bain

Praise for Experimenting with Babies:


"Experimenting with Babies is a wonderful book, giving parents a hands-on way to understand their baby's emerging mind.  The experiments are easy, fun, and nicely annotated with the real science behind them.  What a fabulous way for parents to get to know their new child!"
—Lise Eliot, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Neuroscience at the Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University and author of What's Going On in There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life

“With the marketplace urging parents to buy all manner of things to make their babies ‘smart,’ Gallagher’s book offers parents a view based in science on how much babies really know and figure out on their own.  Parents will have fun with this book and gain new respect and awe for their babies’ amazing capabilities.”
—Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Ph.D., H. Rodney Sharp Professor, University of Delaware and coauthor of How Babies Talk, Einstein Never Used Flash Cards, and a Mandate for Playful Learning in Preschool

Format: Paperback
Obviously, most statisticians probably won't approve (as the author himself admits), but definitely an entertaining book to have around the house. The book presents a wide variety of interesting correlations, such as the relationship between nail-biting and playing video games and the relationship between introversion and preferring corn off the cob. It's fun to read through the correlations and think about what might be driving these random relationships.
Also, the author throws in some interesting mini stats lessons (e.g., "Statistics 101: Correlation and Causation") throughout the book, which are surprisingly accessible yet informative.

Correlated is a very entertaining coffee table book for anyone to pick up and put down as they please. Just as the name describes it's full of seemingly unrelated connections, but I've stumbled across a lot that reflect on how I live my own life.

"We all have that head full of fun useless information, or know someone who does. Gallagher has made sense of that fun useless information and shows how it all relates to one another" - Scott McAllister (Professional Photographer)
