Autorenporträt
Andrew Elliott cares about numbers and how people think about them. Coming from a career in financial systems, he understands the importance of fluent thinking about the impact of numbers in our lives. In 2016, unsettled by the lack of practical numeracy in public debate and in the media, he created a website and wrote the book Is That a Big Number? to help readers answer that question. His next book What are the Chances of That? continues that project by looking at some typically small numbers and probabilities.
