Turning Numbers into Knowledge: Mastering the Art of Problem Solving, Third Edition, by Jonathan Koomey, $24.95 MSRP, October 2017. (Front Matter, including table of contents, foreword, and preface)

The newly revised and updated third edition of this book teaches beginning analysts and students the art of using numbers for practical problem solving, revealing tools, tricks, and heretofore unwritten rules that the best real-world problem solvers know by heart. Mastering the art of problem solving takes more than proficiency with basic calculations—it requires understanding how people use information, recognizing the importance of ideology, learning the art of storytelling, and acknowledging the important distinction between facts and values. This beginner's guide addresses these and other essential skills.
