Jeff, I browsed this book over a cup of coffee @ Borders and decided not to buy it. It is obvious he talked mostly to the theoreticians and not to the practitioners.

The most ironic story to me was about the IBM mathematician calculating human resource choices for projects. Too bad his formulas did not reveal other people within IBM who have already been down that road, and could give him insights and share their learning. Silo-ed thinking/calculations are alive and well!

I will gladly join the club of "Dissenting Numerati"!

Bob Arno mentioned you and Numerati in his article on redflagging as criminal profiling: http://bobarno.com/thiefhunters/2008/09/redflagging/
