Nate Silver wins election,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail-but Some Don't (Kindle Edition)
This would be a great book anytime but it is a must read following the election. Why were so many pundits surprised by Obama's victory? It's not rocket science if you know how to separate the signal from the noise. Unfortunately the pundits are frequently the source of the noise. It will be hard to watch the Sunday morning news programs after reading this book. No wonder the pundits hate Nate Silver.

Bad example, because it really was only the conservative pundits who were surprised by Obama's victory, and presumably, only conservative pundits who hate Silverman. "Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives" -John Stuart Mill
