HOW TO LIE WITH STATISTICS


HOW TO LIE WITH STATISTICS

DARRELL HUFF    Book Number: 89625    Product format: Paperback

From the Penguin Business Book series, this book introduces the reader to the niceties of samples (random or stratified random), averages (mean, median or modal), errors (probable, standard or unintentional), graphs, indexes and other tools of democratic persuasion. The lively, human-interest treatment of the dry-as-bones subject of statistics is a timely tonic, guaranteed to undermine your faith in the almighty statistic. As Dr Johnson once pronounced, 'Round numbers are always false.' With delightful cartoon illus by Mel Calman, Penguin paperback, 124pp.
