Editorial Reviews

Review

"Numbers, graphs and statistics can often be misleading and misrepresented. In Millions, Billions, Zillions: Defending Yourself in a World of Too Many Numbers, Kernighan provides the reader with an entertaining and useful guide to avoid becoming a victim of number abuse."---Ben Rothke, RSA Conference

"Having a healthy skepticism toward numbers and giving readers the tools to think about math more logically is the purpose of this easily read, slight book. Brian W. Kernighan adroitly distills complex issues. His tone is more that of a mellow friend breaking down a concept that flummoxes you rather than an Ivy League professor expounding on the elegance of numbers."---Jacqueline Cutler, NJ.com

"I can wholeheartedly recommend reading this book, because of the infectious way the author describes his interaction with numbers."---J. Herret, International Mathematical News

"This is a must-read for anyone looking to cure their “number numbness”"---Tibi Puiu, ZME Science

Review

"This sophisticated, rich, and accessible book walks us through something we all need but are almost never taught: number sense. The reader is left with real skills and confidence about understanding and interpreting numbers, probabilities, graphics, and much more. Brian Kernighan has done a great service by offering tools that will help all of us become more informed citizens, patients, parents, and news consumers―and better bullshit detectors."―Zeynep Tufekci, contributing opinion writer for the New York Times and author of Twitter and Tear Gas: The Power and Fragility of Networked Protest

“The indispensable guide to numerical trickery, deception, and flimflam!”―Harry Lewis, coauthor of Blown to Bits: Your Life, Liberty, and Happiness after the Digital Explosion

“A delightful introduction to an important topic, this book will appeal to far more than technical readers and could become a classic.”―Jon Bentley, retired Distinguished Member of Technical Staff, Bell Labs Research
