Overview

Correlated: Surprising Connections Between Seemingly Unrelated Things by Shaun Gallagher

Mind-blowing statistics and crazy connections—from the number-crunching genius behind a popular blog. Based on findings on Correlated.org, this surprising and very funny book presents bizarre-but-true correlations between seemingly unrelated things.

Based on daily polls and statistical analysis, in CORRELATED, Gallagher reveals:

• People who prefer Miss Piggy to Kermit the Frog are more than twice as likely than average to have tattoos
• People with body piercings are twice as likely as the average person to have deployed a fire extinguisher
• People with bumper stickers on their car are more likely than average to have square danced

You’ll never look at poll results or scientific sound bites the same way again!
