Numbers dictate our lives – from school grades to the economy.  Econometrist Sanne Blauw explains why figures are not as objective as they seem.  From the numbers that govern our health to statistics used to wield huge power, The Number Bias offers a myth-busting reassessment of the statistics we are fed.  Sanne Blauw is the numeracy correspondent for Dutch online news site and publisher De Correspondent. 

This book will be a total eye-opener for thousands of people. Sanne Blauw is the maths, economics and history teacher that everyone wished they’d hadRutger Bregman

Wyn Morgan is Professor of Economics and Vice President for Education at the University of Sheffield
