Share the Wealth with Jason Makansi: Painting by Numbers at Left Bank Books
by Mark Chmiel
For this week’s Share the Wealth, I invite you to learn from my friend Jason Makansi this Thursday!
Left Bank Books welcomes author and independent consultant Jason Makansi, who will sign and discuss his new book, Painting By Numbers: How to Sharpen Your BS Detector and Smoke Out the Experts!
How well do you know what you think you know? If you’ve ever pored over election polling data, argued about climate change, or read an article describing the latest study on a topic you care about, Painting By Numbers is for you. Written in an entertaining and approachable style and with humorous illustrations to help explain complex modeling concepts, Painting By Numbers helps make sense of the numbers shaping modern society. Using examples drawn from polling data, medicine, climate modeling, and more, Painting By Numbers is the essential toolkit with 12 commandments for evaluating the numbers that shape our lives.
“There’s a desperate need for every literate person to understand this.” —Dr. Elton McGoun, Accounting and Business Professor, Bucknell University
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Painting By Numbers ($12.95) from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
