New book gift ideas for analytical friends and family
Need holiday gift ideas for the quantitative-minded people in your life -- or need a good read for yourself?
Having polled some of my erudite friends and colleagues as well as having finished some noteworthy books these last several months, I developed a book list that may help with your holiday shopping (even if it’s for yourself).
In preparing this list, I thought it might be useful to include relevant links to other content you may find worthwhile — related to the book and/or the author. In addition, you may want to consult two previous posts that have more recommendations, one from last year and one from 2011. Also, the recommended reading page of the Analytically Speaking webcast series (now in its fourth year) is updated regularly. Several subject matter experts featured in this webcast series — many of whom are authors themselves — also share books they recommend.
