Description

This item is a postcard announcing The Book of Why, by Judea Pearl and Dana Mackenzie, a book to be published in May 2018 by Basic Books. This book confronts the hoary old adage, "Correlation is not causation," which has been taught to generations of statisticians and scientists and used as a pretext to avoid talking about causation. Pearl has developed mathematical algorithms for reasoning about cause and effect, and the book gives numerous examples of how these can be put into practice. It is intended for a popular (non-technical) audience.
