↴ How to Lie with Statistics eBook: Darrell Huff, Irving Geis: Amazon.fr: Amazon Media EU S.à r.l. library ⣋ Kindle Author Darrell Huff ⤋ There is terror in numbers, writes Darrell Huff in How to Lie with Statistics And nowhere does this terror translate to blind acceptance of authority than in the slippery world of averages, correlations, graphs, and trends Huff sought to break through the daze that follows the collision of statistics with the human mind with this slim volume, first published in 1954 The book remains relevant as a wake up call for people unaccustomed to examining the endless flow of numbers pouring from Wall Street, Madison Avenue, and everywhere else someone has an axe to grind, a point to prove, or a product to sell The secret language of statistics, so appealing in a fact minded culture, is employed to sensationalize, inflate, confuse, and oversimplify, warns Huff. Although many of the examples used in the book are charmingly dated, the cautions are timeless Statistics are rife with opportunities for misuse, from gee whiz graphs that add nonexistent drama to trends, to results detached from their method and meaning, to statistics ultimate bugaboo faulty cause and effect reasoning Huff s tone is tolerant and amused, but no nonsense Like a lecturing father, he expects you to learn something useful from the book, and start applying it every day Never be a sucker again, he cries Even if you can t find a source of demonstrable bias, allow yourself some degree of skepticism about the results as long as there is a possibility of bias somewhere There always is. Read How to Lie with Statistics Whether you encounter statistics at work, at school, or in advertising, you ll remember its simple lessons Don t be terrorized by numbers, Huff implores The fact is that, despite its mathematical base, statistics is as much an art as it is a science Therese LittletonOver Half a Million Copies Sold an Honest to Goodness BestsellerDarrell Huff runs the gamut of every popularly used type of statistic, probes such things as the sample study, the tabulation method, the interview technique, or the way the results are derived from the figures, and points up the countless number of dodges which are used to full rather than to inform.
