it was amazing

Highly engaging, entertaining, one of the best I've read in 2016.

This book won't change your life but it will leave you with perhaps a cynical but more real perspective about the world. A world driven by numbers.

It's great to see situations, events and cultures being explored by numbers. Malcolm Gladwell does a wonderful job explain the said things but Steven takes it a step further to an argument driven by numbers where it's hard to disagree with the guy.

You can argue with people through logic, philosophy or rationale but it's hard to change someone's opinion. Numbers on the other hand no one can deny and the truth by numbers is the best truth of all. And Steven does a wonderful job of getting to the truth by numbers.
