How to Lie with Statistics

Release Notes
A 1954 classic that continues to dispel false beliefs and inform the
statistically naive. Huff's direct and witty style exposes how advertisers,
government and the media mislead their audiences through the misuse of
statistics. Huff then explains how the reader can see through the smoke and
mirrors to get to the real meaning--if any--of what is presented.
