Product description

Darrell Huff runs the gamut of every popularly used type of statistic, probes such things as the sample study, the tabulation method, the interview technique, or the way the results are derived from the figures, and points up the countless number of dodges which are used to full rather than to inform.

Review quote

"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."
