How to Lie with Statistics

How to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Huff

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A relatively quick read full of examples where statistics have been used to propagate ideas useful to the body producing or using them. If you want a quick read to open your mind as to the common and not so common tricks companies, governments and individuals use then this is the book for you.

I did find that it got tedious as points but that is acceptable for such a short, well written book. The book was written a while back but the techniques are all the same.

Very useful and I dare say I feel more aware as to how I may keep myself safe from statistical propaganda.
