Errata From Initial Publication

The following are changes that have been made in the eBook since it’s initial publication in August 2018. The eBook has been updated for new purchasers.

  • The X chart for the number of Oscar telecast viewers erroneously had the years 1991, 2002, and 2013 appear twice in the X-axis. The last data point should have been labeled 2018 instead of 2017.

The chart should look like this (click for a larger view):

  • In the discussion of the Oscars, the sentence “The data and charts show that 2008 was the lowest year in recent history by a small margin” should have said that 2018 was the lowest year.
  • In the section about the surgical deaths simulation, “there were 10 deaths in Period 2″ should have said Period 4.

I apologize for any errors.
