Most of this book is not statistics, it’s really physics. How can birds fly and lift themselves up in the air? How do dogs cool themselves by panting? He’s looking at things that people take for granted, and saying, these are amazing feats of engineering. One reason I connect it with statistics – it’s not only the graphs – is the fact there’s an interplay between physics modelling, data collection and statistical analysis. And that’s what statistics is all about – it’s about building real models, using real information.
