Written very long years ago, this is still a highly relevant book that exposes the many flaws in statistics and how easy it is to manipulate findings. A short book that everyone should read. Delivery was fantastic from Booksgoat Apprecaited!!!

It's a fun book to read. If you have some stats background every chapter would make you nod and scream "OMG! Been there! Done that..." It was first published in 1954, but it's still applicable today.

A beautifully written book that introduces common errors in statistical reasoning. I came away thinking: Why don't "intro-statistics" classes just have students read this book? Students would learn more than they do by running canned software so that to recite numbers they don't understand. Very quick dispatch. First-rate service

A great book illustrating all the different ways that you can lie with numbers and graphics. Nothing you wouldn't have known before, Author uses various experiences and examples to outline the cause and effects of use of statistics. A tad repetition of folklores, however adds to the purpose of the book. worth the time. Speedy to send!!

An easy and quick read about how to protect yourself against misleading statistics and visualizations! Interesting if you regularly follow the use or make data visualizations yourself.

really Clear, readable, and witty. This book, published in the 50s, is as relevant today as it was then.

One of the Best books I have ever read. If you understand this book, and it ain't hard, and you apply it to the statistics you come across in your life, then you will NOT be bamboozzled.
