A must-read for anyone who makes business decisions that have amajor financial impact. As the recent collapse on Wall Street shows, we are oftenill-equipped to deal with uncertainty and risk. Yet every day webase our personal and business plans on uncertainties, whether theybe next month’s sales, next year’s costs, ortomorrow’s stock price. In The Flaw of Averages, SamSavage­known for his creative exposition of difficultsubjects­ describes common avoidable mistakes in assessingrisk in the face of uncertainty. Along the way, he shows why plansbased on average assumptions are wrong, on average, in areas asdiverse as healthcare, accounting, the War on Terror, and climatechange. In his chapter on Sex and the Central Limit Theorem, hebravely grasps the literary third rail of gender differences. Instead of statistical jargon, Savage presents complex conceptsin plain English. In addition, a tightly integrated web sitecontains numerous animations and simulations to further connect theseat of the reader’s intellect to the seat of theirpants. The Flaw of Averages typically results when someone plugsa single number into a spreadsheet to represent an uncertain futurequantity. Savage finishes the book with a discussion of theemerging field of Probability Management, which cures this problemthough a new technology that can pack thousands of numbers into asingle spreadsheet cell. Praise for The Flaw of Averages “Statistical uncertainties are pervasive in decisions wemake every day in business, government, and our personal lives. SamSavage’s lively and engaging book gives any interested readerthe insight and the tools to deal effectively with thoseuncertainties. I highly recommend The Flaw ofAverages.” —William J. Perry, Former U.S. Secretary ofDefense “Enterprise analysis under uncertainty has long been anacademic ideal. . . . In this profound and entertaining book,Professor Savage shows how to make all this practical, practicable,and comprehensible.” —­Harry Markowitz, Nobel Laureate inEconomics

A serial killer is targeting the women of Mears, Colorado, and so far the police have nothing to go on. Detective Casey O'Toole is assigned to jump-start the investigation, and she discovers two unsettling facts: the victims were all patients of a prominent plastic surgeon, and each of them bears an uncanny resemblance to herself. Ruled out as a suspect, Dr. Mark Adams offers to assist Casey in any way he can and, despite her resistance, their relationship quickly turns personal. The pressure on Casey to find the killer mounts steadily as terror grips the small mountain community. Then a stunning twist leads Casey to the deadly truth—and to the face of a killer nearly as familiar as her own.

For friends Lawson Kerry Banks, Sullivan Webb, Reginell Kerry, Kina Battle, and Angel King, life never offers a dull moment. Sisterly love morphs into an intense sibling rivalry between Lawson and her younger sister, Reginell. Reginell has always admired and looked up to her older sister, but she is met with disapproval because of her job as an exotic dancer. First Lady Sullivan Webb has struggled to get her life and her marriage back on track after her extramarital affair is exposed on the Internet. Sullivan believes that the solution to her marital problems may lie in giving Charles the one thing he doesn't have. Everything backfires when Sullivan takes matters out of the Lord's hands and into her own. Kina Battle thought her troubles were over once her abusive husband was dead and buried. What she didn't anticipate was a crushing bout of loneliness that her new job, her church, or her devotion to her son, Kenny, can't cure. She soon finds herself drawn to the last person she ever thought she'd be attracted to. Angel King has met the man of her dreams. Unfortunately, it's a little too late, because she is already engaged to someone else. The ladies have all overcome their share of obstacles, but nothing like the challenges they're currently facing. Friendship, love, and laughs won't be enough this time. Only God can save them now.

When we look at the world around us, one of the most common observations is that things have a tendency to go wrong. People make mistakes, have accidents and some of them commit deliberate acts of violence. Disease affects every single species of plant and animal on the planet. Natural disasters kill millions of people and decimate animal populations. Countless people and animals suffer through no fault of their own. Scientists explain these events in various ways depending upon whether they involve errors in human choices and actions or whether they are caused by natural events. Theologians give us a different set of religious explanations. At times it can appear as if there is a fundamental flaw in the universe. In this book, Adrian Hough uses his training and expertise as both a scientist and a theologian to approach this flaw from both directions and comes up with the astonishing result that both sets of reasoning might have the same fundamental explanation.

Does it not seem strange that these patrons of truth have no actual base for the truth they espouse? Should not these champions of reason offer some plausible foundation for the rational thought they employ? Who can but doubt these adversaries of God who cannot even account for the moral sense by which they denounce Him? What shall we say of masters of science who would deprive science of the undergirding of truth and reason? These are not lords of their own domain, as they might suppose. They are squatters on a land belonging to another—mere pretenders, plagiarizers of values not their own. Like the Prodigal Son, they have taken the resources bequeathed by a loving Father and squandered them in futile meanderings. No one should take these men as seriously as they take themselves. They are not reaching for the far horizon line. Rather they are trapped in their tiny, cramped valley called physicality and have chosen to ignore every other doorway to reality. They are not men reaching for the stars. They are rather like those who wade through muck and mire, stirring up more as they go.

In his 2008 Congressional testimony, Dr. Alan Greenspan, Former Federal Reserve Chairman, noted a flaw in the economic model he previously thought defined how the world works. Greenspan was referring to the ability of banks and markets to regulate themselves an ideology he admitted went wrong with the 2008 economic meltdown. The author has a unique perspective from the inside. He covers topics like inflation, quantitative easing, the fiscal cliff, and the global debt crisis with clarity and purpose. Dr. Alan P. Chan is presenting his research as evidence of money s shaky foundation as an economic driver that Dr. Greenspan's critical flaw presents an excellent investment opportunity. Well-argued and ultimately quite persuasive With a straightforward, accessible writing style that conveys his obvious passion for the topic, Chan articulates important points of economic theory without becoming too abstract.
