John H. Johnson and Mike Gluck illustrate just a few of the many ways we misunderstand the massive amount of data we absorb every day―from news, from social media, from friends asking us if "We heard about that study."
Johnson and Gluck are the co-authors of EVERYDATA, a new book that has garnered praise from Fast Company, Information Week, Computerworld, among many others.
John H. Johnson, PhD is an expert economist and statistician. He is also the founder of Edgeworth Economics, a consulting firm based in Washington, DC.
Mike is an award-winning writer and marketer who specializes in making complex topics easy to understand. He is also president of Gluckworks, a copywriting firm in Buffalo.
