How Not to Be Wrong is a book by Jordan Ellenberg. The book is about how math can solve real-world problems. For example, in the first chapter, it tells a story about Abraham Wald and the Missing Bullet Holes. It shows how Abraham Wald uses math to solve the ” Survivorship bias” and how mathematics is common sense. Even the process of proving is complicated, but the idea doesn’t require formulas.
