“If I could sum up the message of this book in one pithy phrase, it would be that you are smarter than your data. Data do not understand causes and effects; humans do.”
Judea Pearl, The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect

“You cannot answer a question that you cannot ask, and you cannot ask a question that you have no words for.”
Judea Pearl, The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect

“Data can tell you that the people who took a medicine recovered faster than those who did not take it, but they can’t tell you why. Maybe those who took the medicine did so because they could afford it and would have recovered just as fast without it.”
Judea Pearl, The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect
