Descrizione dell’editore

* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes.

*By reading this summary, you will learn how to defend yourself against the misused statistics that litter our daily lives.

*You will also learn : the importance of statistical samples; to be wary of missing data; how to identify misleading graphs; how to manipulate statistical jargon to your advantage; what questions to ask yourself to avoid falling into the trap set by certain statistics.

*Statistics are very useful, but they can be misused to sell a product, convince voters, or attract attention. For example, a local newspaper, with its focus on crime, may make its readers believe that they live in a dangerous place, and a study explaining that after ingesting a certain medication, colds tend to disappear, may make people buy a product that is as effective as no treatment at all! Statistics have the devious advantage of appearing factual, which is what makes them attractive, but in the mouth of a dishonest person, they can fool even the most discerning readers. This book serves not as an instruction manual for crooks, but as a self-defense manual for their potential victims: honest people.

*Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!
