Quantitative analysis can be an intimidating subject, but accessible writing and Alan Sklar's warm, gravelly voice make this audiobook surprisingly friendly. The "quants" of the title are analysts who use large amounts of data to improve decision making, and their influence is now growing far beyond the field of finance. The authors address their book to businesspeople with no mathematical background, suggesting how anyone can use a quant-like process at work or in daily life. They explain their ideas in nontechnical language that works well in audio because there's no need for formulas or diagrams. Sklar's narration is a comfortable fit, especially during the passages where anecdotes and real-world examples are used to illustrate statistical concepts.
