How to Lie with Statistics

How to Lie with StatisticsHow to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Huff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I felt this was an important topic to understand, as a layperson, and this book was targeted toward just that audience. I doubt I'll ever tackle the nitty gritty of statistics, but I am now more knowledgable  about the methods and principles that underlie the practice, as well as the sneaky methods that can manipulate the data or prop up dubious claims.  

The author was informative, concise, and humorous. The illustrations were vintage 1950s style, which I enjoyed almost as much as the text.
