Using examples drawn from polling data, medicine, climate modeling, and more, PAINTING BY NUMBERS is the essential toolkit for evaluating the numbers that shape our lives. How well do you know what you think you know? If you’ve ever pored over election polling data, argued about climate change, or read an article describing the latest study on a topic you care about, PAINTING BY NUMBERS is for you. Written in an entertaining and approachable style and with humorous illustrations to help explain complex modeling concepts, PAINTING BY NUMBERS, Jason Makansi’s fourth book, is an essential tool for making sense of the numbers shaping modern society.

Jason Makansi, founder of Pearl Street, is a prolific author, respected industry thought leader, and sought-after communicator. He has spoken to industry, business and community groups on energy and economic issues and has taken his message of the importance of electricity infrastructure and investment to thousands of listeners across the country. His third book, Lights Out: The Electricity Crisis, the Global Economy, and What It Means to You, was called a “must read for anyone even slightly interested in the adequacy of the U.S. power sector and what the future may hold,” and received glowing reviews from industry observers and critics in the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the St. Louis Post Dispatch to name just a few. Today, he is at work on his fourth book.
