Description

In ‘How To Lie With Statistics’ Darrell Huff shows how statistics is used to fool rather than to inform by probing every popularly used type of statistics – such as the sample study, the tabulation method, the interview technique, or the way the results are derived from the figures. In one short take after another, Huff picks apart the ways in which marketers use statistics, charts, graphics and other ways of presenting numbers to baffle and trick the public. The chapter “How to Talk Back to a Statistic” is a brilliant step-by-step guide to figuring out how someone is trying to deceive you with data. First published in 1954, the lessons remain relevant even today.
