The Signal And The Noise


Nate Silver is the man who correctly predicted the 2008 and 2012 Elections. And he wrote the book, “The Signal And The Noise”. He also has a blog called 538, which gets it’s name from the number of electors in the United States Electoral College.


Visit the blog here: 538 Blog.

The book is about prediction and ends up being about so much more…weather, politics, terrorism, sports, stock market, etc. It’s an interesting read, especially when you realize how much our lives are affected and influenced by prediction.

Nate Sliver has a wonderful quote in the book, “The signal is the truth, the noise is what distracts us from the truth”. Thoughtful, dense, and illuminating.
