A timeless classic

My father had this on his bookshelf when I was a kid several decades ago and it is still as fresh and relevant today as ever. I sent the copy I bought this time around to a Stanford professor who had important facts and conclusions, but marred them, in my view, by statistical graphics that unnecessarily distorted the underlying numbers.

Dated, but Hilarious

This is a great book exposing how statistics can be misused. It is dated, but the info is still accurate.

Relevant and Funny

This is a great little book, with extremely relevant information, delivered with a very tongue-in-cheek style of humor that is very refreshing.
