Product description

Review

A pleasantly subversive little book, Guaranteed to undermine your faith in the almighty statistic.

Mr. Huff's lively, human-interest treatment of the dry-as-bones subject of statistics is a timely tonic.... This book needed to be written, and makes its points in an entertaining, highly readable manner.

A pleasantly subversive little book, guaranteed to undermine your faith in the almighty statistic.

A hilarious exploration of mathematical mendacity . Every time you pick it up, what happens? Bang goes another illusion!"

A great introduction to the use of statistics, and a great refresher for anyone who's already well versed in it.--Bill Gates

Mr. Huff's lively, human-interest treatment of the dry-as-bones subject of statistics is a timely tonic This book needed to be written, and makes its points in an entertaining, highly readable manner."

Illustrator and author pool their considerable talents to provide light lively reading and cartoon far which will entertain, really inform, and take the wind out of many an overblown statistical sail.

A pleasantly subversive little book, guaranteed to undermine your faith in the almighty statistic.

A hilarious exploration of mathematical mendacity.... Every time you pick it up, what happens? Bang goes another illusion!

In one short take after another, Huff picks apart the ways in which marketers use statistics, charts, graphics and other ways of presenting numbers to baffle and trick the public. The chapter "How to Talk Back to a Statistic" is a brilliant step-by-step guide to figuring out how someone is trying to deceive you with data. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
