Nate Silver: Finding a mentor, teaching yourself statistics and not settling
from Harvard Business Review
Perhaps no one has done more for the cause of data-driven decision-making in the minds of the public than Nate Silver.

Data science is the hottest field to be in right now, and Silver is its poster child.

How do those without extensive training in statistics equip themselves with the skills necessary to thrive (or even just survive) in our age of big data?
