Statistics for People Bad at Math
"How to Lie With Statistics" is a great book about the many incorrect things that can be easily "proven" with mathematics, and how you can avoid falling for it. The real strength of the book is that it gets it's point across with simple terms and examples that most non-mathematicians will be able to easily follow. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in taking a more critical look at our world from a numerical perspective, but wants to do it without an advanced degree.
This is a fascinating and fun read that demonstrates how easy it is to deceive with simple statistics. Even if some of the examples are a bit outdated, they are still very relevant and this book should be read for your own protection.
