While both of these articles look at different things within the book they seem to carry the same aspect between them all. They both talk about how O’Neil uses the very underlying information to make her points seem a bit more valid. I actually agree with both articles. They both have aspects that I can get on board with. In Bradley's review, I can understand why he appreciated O’Neil’s enthusiasm for algorithms. However, I can see Dorling's frustrations with O’Neil because she doesn’t show us her personal findings nor does she show us an actual algorithm. They both make a tremendous argument when it comes to their point of views. However, I agree with Dorling more because I wonder the same things that he did. Why she didn’t inform us where to find her research? And why she didn’t show us an algorithm so that way the readers could understand the math? While everyone has their opinions on everything, being opened to a new opinion can vastly help individual growth. Reading these two reviews I can understand both points of view and have grown in my understanding of this book. Not everything is perfect and this book is yet again no exception.
