Errata From Initial eBook Publication

The following are changes that have been made in the eBook since its initial publication in August 2018. The eBook has been updated for new purchasers. These errors are not in the print edition.

  • 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.
