A timeless classic

by HBL3973 on Apr 10, 2014

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

by BigJay on Mar 18, 2010

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


Relevant and Funny

by Wiltpruf on Jan 9, 2009

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