Editorial Reviews


"A lively, well-written, attractively packaged book on the art of critical thinking." —Skeptical Inquirer

“This outstanding book teaches the tricks of the analytical trade. There’s no better guide to learning how to use numbers to understand the world.”—Art Rosenfeld, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of California at Berkeley 

"Dr. Koomey's book deserves to be widely read and shared, especially by those who take seriously the fragile yet critical role of an informed citizenry in increasingly complex democratic societies." —Professor Michael Maniates, Yale-NUS College 

"There is nothing else like this book out there. Nobody who deals with problems where numbers matter—and everybody in today’s world really needs to—should be without it." —John P. Holdren, past president, American Association for the Advancement of Science

"This book is a great tool for improving your own use of numbers and for seeing through the smoke screens of others." —Lee Schipper, PhD, formerly senior scientist, International Energy Agency

"This book is a terrific resource for students, and an essential aid for researchers, from undergraduates on up. Required reading!" —Eban Goodstein, professor, department of economics, Lewis and Clark College

"The greatest challenge facing educators, institutions, and businesses is the inculcation of rigor and fact-based analysis into the psyches of future leaders. Turning Numbers into Knowledge is the tool for organizations to accomplish this essential task." —Ephraim Heller, founder, Therasense, Inc., Angioscore Inc, and SynAgile Inc.
