Really Great Book

For those that want to learn the basics about statistics; or those that want to find out how much the daily newspapers LEAVE OUT when writing about the latest "Opinion Poll," this book is for you.
Taking current news and national interests, Moore and Notz present the "real news" behind the latest polls. This book is so thorough that you cannot wait to read through the morning paper and see which polls are "factual" and which polls are "not-so factual." After reading this book, you can even "see" the agenda the writer is trying to push.
You need proof that people slant or tilt statistical data to push an agenda - Read this book!
I WILL NOT sell back this book!
