Review "This book is a welcome antidote to the blind use of supposedly quantitative models." -- Carl Wunsch, American Scientist "This is an easy and persuasive read." -- Fred Pearce, New Scientist " Useless Arithmetic dispels many myths and is a 'must read' packing in case studies and insights on faulty thinking." -- The Midwest Book Review "[This] readily accessible book should be read by any activist who's ever had to face off against the opposition's engineers." -- Earth Island Journal "A concise, powerful, and readable book." -- Steven R. Carpenter, Issues in Science and Technology "This book should be in every library... Essential." -- Choice " Useless Arithmetic will surely excite any reader." -- David Simberloff, BioScience "" Review "Using concrete examples, the authors of Useless Arithmetic cut through the scientific jargon to show how and why many aspects of the environment are under threat because of the slavish adherence to misleading mathematical models by their technical and political advocates." -- Victor R. Baker, University of Arizona
