Statistician to the Stars!

Breaking the Law of Averages has finally arrived (almost)!

The book is finally — almost — in the distribution system!

Breaking the Law of Averages

You can sign up to pre-order at Amazon in the States.

Amazon in Germany. (Note: The book is still in English!)

Or Amazon in the U.K.

Doesn’t seem to have reached Barnes & Noble or anywhere else, yet. I’ll update everybody here once it’s available generally.

If you are anxious (a natural feeling) you can buy it immediately at the publisher: click here.

Or if you are feeling the need badly, there’s always this book.


  1. It is on pre-order at Amazon.ca as well.

  2. self-published? My Bayesian bet is it’s not that good overall, will suffer from lack of quality control, and won’t make much money,

    Well, you might be right, though you don’t express it in the friendliest manner. Best way to find out about your first two suppositions is to buy a copy and read it, then come back here and report. Your last guess is nearly a given since almost no text book makes any money.

  4. Mankiw is doing all right…

  5. It’s how I am, Matt. I show love by pulling pigtails.

  6. You gotta give me props for “using the prior” of self publishing to help my estimation.

  8. I like being reminded…
