How to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Hugg, illustrated by Irving Geis - Darrell 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 results are derived from the figures, and points up the countless number of dodges which are used to fool rather than to inform.

Illustrator and author pool their considerable talents to provide light lively reading and cartoon far which will entertain, really inform, and take the wind out of many an overblown statistical sail. - Library Journal

A pleasantly subversive little book, guaranteed to undermine your faith in the almighty statistic." - Atlantic

Paper, 142 pages. This 1954 classic was reissued in 1993. Though written in the 1950's, it is still relevant today. The illustrations are vintage 1950's and are quite amusing.
