After a few months of waiting, my new book The Data Loom: Weaving Understanding by Thinking Critically and Scientifically with Data is now available. By clicking on the image below, you can order it for immediate delivery from Amazon.
Data, in and of itself, is not valuable. It only becomes valuable when we make sense of it. Unfortunately, most of us who are responsible for making sense of data have never been trained in two of the job’s most essentially thinking skillsets: critical thinking and scientific thinking. The Data Loom does something that no other book does—it covers the basic concepts and practices of both critical thinking and scientific thinking and does so in a way that is tailored to the needs of data sensemakers. If you’ve never been trained in these essential thinking skills, you owe it to yourself and your organization to read this book. This simple book will bring clarity and direction to your thinking.
