Damn statistics

On the recommendation of a comment thread on Reddit, I picked up the slim "How to lie with statistics."  On a similar note, Maggie's Farm has a humorous graph in "Correlation vs. Causation."  Disclaimer: I use Google Chrome so I have no tendency towards murder.

I read that book when I was in high school. It was an old book even then. I'm not at all surprised that it is still in print.

I'd rate it one of the top 5 books I've ever read. How to Lie With Statistics is one of those rare books that can change the way you look at the world.
