Presenter of BBC R4’s award-winning More or Less and The Financial Times’ ‘Undercover Economist’ columnist Tim Harford (How to Make the World Add Up) has been busier than ever during the pandemic, helping us to understand the numbers behind the crisis. Here he presents this extraordinarily insightful look at the power of numbers and how to understand them better. Using ten simple rules for understanding numbers – plus one golden rule – he shows us how if we think carefully about the way numbers are sourced and presented, we can see with crystal clarity how the world adds up.
