Super Crunchers: Why Thinking-by-Numbers Is the New Way to be Smart is a book written by Ian Ayres, a law professor at Yale Law School about how number analysis, such as multiple regression analysis affects all areas of life, often in unexpected ways.

With examples from medicine, entertainment, wine-collecting, education, business, sports, and oenology, Ayres explains how statistical evidence can be used as a supplement or substitute for human intuition.
