Make no mistake, statistics is hard. Many people use statistics informally in their lives daily. Sometimes, these people use statistics without understanding it fully. Would your job be easier if you knew these concepts? Would it be valuable if you had simple explanations and stories for why different statistical concepts make sense?

The simple answer is nothing. Paperb ack :. Post a comment. May 15, Her new book, co-authored with Roger Highfield, is The Dance of Life: symmetry, cells and how we become human. Why science? I fell in love with biology when I was a child because I loved doing experiments and seeing what happened. It was fascinating and enormous fun.
I also fell in love with art at the same time. Art and science are both based on experiments and uncovering new paths to understand the world and ourselves. Why do we think the way we think? Where do our feelings come from? Is the 'right' answer always right? Where do we come from? How do parts of our body communicate with each other? What is the nature of ti…. Read more. May 06, There is without doubt a fascination for all of us - even those who can find biology a touch tedious - with the way that a tiny cellular blob develops into the hugely complex thing that is a living organism, especially a human.
In this unusual book which I can only describe as a memoir of science, Magalena Zernicka-Goetz, assisted by the Science Museum's Roger Highfield, tells the story of her own career and discoveries.
At the heart of the book, and Zernicka-Goetz's work, is symmetry breaking, a topic very familiar to readers of popular physics titles, but perhaps less so in popular biology. The first real breakthrough from her lab was the discovery of the way that a mouse egg's first division was already asymmetrical - the two new cells were not identical, not equally likely to become embryo and support structure as had always been thought. As the book progresses, throughout the process of development we see how different symmetries are broken, with a particular focus on….
