Author, The Numerati and Final Jeopardy

Following a BusinessWeek cover story, Math Will Rock Your World, Stephen wrote The Numerati in 2009, which looked at the explosion of digital data and the rise of the applied math gurus who use it to model and predict the behavior of shoppers, voters, patients, terrorists, and even lovers.

A Wall Street Journal review calls it "a highly readable and fascinating account of the number-driven world we now live in." His next book, Final Jeopardy: The Man-Machine Battle for the Future of our Minds, came out last year.

Stephen lives in Montclair, NJ with his wife, Jalaire, and their three sons.
