Found the too intellectual the comprehend and he felts like an academic book more than as the pleasant and insightful has read.

A title is misleading. This rids is not roughly when being right or wrong, but roughly when being able to better comprise all an information that is going in.

Is class of Malcom Gladwell fashionable book partorisca engineers and of the scientists. It is full of interesting viñetas.

I never look in prognosis of time or deep mutualistic a same way again.

Although it does not have any a lot of calculations in a book, a book is easier that read has the moderate comprising of mathematicians.

The book adds, find the people expect too much of a book perhaps because of his only title 'That a lot to be wrong' but would have to that direct in a hard portion 'A power of the mathematician Thought'. This book underlines an importance of mathematics in our daily lives if his reading in a next drug for diabetics, government healthcare police to included that comprises like this to beat a lottery.
PROS- Extremely in interesting examples, application of mathematics and an emphasis on thinking besides a norm
GILIPOLLAS- Roughly of some points of authors are weakened for some constants overlapping of different histories

@In rodeo, Giordania Ellenberg declares this soyathematics is an extension of common sense for another half', could not adapt more. This book resupplies the strong perspective on identifying all some zones in life where the mathematics I touches and an importance for the use to help. If you are the mathematics of entity or the complete novice, take a time to read this book, transmission your perspective in mathematics and also a world.

It has not thought the book in the mathematician has thought repeatedly could spend on WWII, Judaism or God (w/ the main G) almost each chapter? Well buckle in, would be wrong...

This has said, there is the acute alcohol for behind a narrative of victim and was the decent bed this in spite of any necessarily value of the money.

So only my type of book. A perfect mix of the mathematics and is influences on history, sociology and politician. Calm really leave you to reflect on all these subjects of entities with the sense of rigour so only the mathematician can appreciate!

Ellenburg Presents theorems of mathematician with practical applications in of the subjects to the equal that touches that he the interesting fact.
4 / 5
Is taken, which there is on 430 pages of main text, an author speaks the mathematician has thought to accuse which are applied often in daily life. You are the long exercise to list everything of some subjects that is to touch to here, but a subject global is an use of mathematical ways to think to comprise several observations in some world-wide around . A book comprises several useful figures and of the tables but very few formulas, a be of the emphasis in a process has thought more than a blind application of formulas to has remarked phenomena.

Has found the fashion to write of an author to be very animate, friendly, authoritative, often witty and quite captivating. A text is also generally accessible, although has has had to that king-read some passages the little time to leave sure explanations to finally of tank in.

Thinks that this book can be enjoyed for the very wide readers. Although enthusiasts/of science of beat it mathematician relish this book more than a half general reader, think that all the world, has included that they are mathematical -phobic, stand to learn a lot this work in a true character of mathematics.

Like the final note, is in accordance with the forward reviewer the one who has signalled was that, although the title of a book is quite catchy, the majority of pertinent one is in fact be his subtitle.

Is remained really waiting for enjoying this book but I also am finding a gratuitous and lazy moralising to be that it dips was, as well as a blatant politician partisanship, any duquel is essential to a be of the points has done. It averts of that, a presentation of ideas is a lot like this far (I follows the pair of chapters in) but finds one writing too rambling. It is Emerson . Good ideas but the just quantity of tall to read this.

Am planning on rereading this time of diverse book. Ellenberg The magnificient does in teaching like this to think to the wide variety of the subjects that use mathematical lentil. An only negative is that a book is supposition to be accessible to any one. It is some to the sure discharge but some concepts are hard to take if you have not taken some classes of mathematics in university. In general it is often deliciously counterintuitive. It opens your alcohol in the new world-wide integer.

A very written book and interesting. This in spite of, can not help but remark a blatant and continuing sinister and pro sprain of Democrat Party that careers by means of a text that has weakened one querella that a book has been based in logical so only. It thinks roughly that: if after reading the book in mathematician has thought rests with absolutely to good sure in that political party some votes of author for then something is not quite right. Reason do academics this? They are no self-conscious? In all the chance, another that that, a book was a lot.

3.5 Stars...

University of professor of Wisconsin and veritable character of numbers, Giordania Ellenberg, affirms that the mathematician “is like an atomic-powered prosthesis that attaches to your common sense, vastly multiplying the sound achieves and force.” We can a lot of all is mathematical writes, but we certainly ought partorisca try. Ellenberg Is (sometimes also) that questions but book that the causes have thought show like partorisca help our brains use mathematical principles to the equal that drives to attentive thought in a world.

'That A lot partorisca Be Wrong' contains five sections, each looking the concept of mathematician that can apply the real life: linearity, inference, expectation, regression, and existence. In linearity, Ellenberg counters our instinctive faith that movements of life in of the straight lines. It Advantage shouted of taxes of the tax partorisca register main or go down gone back? It depends. Inference teases Out of unexpected ideas: during a controversy 2009 Iranian election, reason has done a number seven looks two times like this often to the equal that was expected in the just vote?

Ellenberg Also tip that to skill partorisca ask some the right questions can avert deceptions; it is everything too easy to be arithmetically corrected but mathematically bad. It warns that a lot of studios of scientific investigation can try worthless because of a method has used to calculate a reliability of some results. It explains red reason-hot hitters inevitably cools was and reason a lot the successful subjects always pardon his flange over time.

A defiant but welcome mate to any interested in an art of numbers.

Excellent introduction the causality. Has all has learnt that "the correlation is not causation" and Pearl explains reason this mantra short a risk partorisca launch a creature was with a bath-water.

In today of world-wide of big technology where all is explained with "Corel Present" or "Power Point" graphic presentations, this text is resulted much more that imports that never before.
That often have you has been to the presentation, has seen a map coloreado and has accepted an information that is portrayed yours like this realistic? You could have has has had suspicions in diverse things but has not had enough rear bone to speak up or contest these figures because simply it calms has not known the one who questions to ask.
This book drives a by means of a maze of statistics, his abuse by means of wrong calculations and unconcious optial illusions of graphs to influence our perception of a way sees the situation.
When Management, the salesperson or the politician begins to speak in averages in the graph; he his Question that half is in fact that pause roughly. They are that they speak in a bad way , the average or the half average mediate? I in fact begun inquiring with authors of leading presentations that has received in a past. Some of some experts that present these facts and the figures have not known a calaculations has used to atttain his results because they had purchased the ones of 3rd or 4.as sources. Tip what clueless presentors has in this world.
Sampeling Is another of this statistics some to forget to ask roughly. When we see it imagines to indicate 30 percent "HE" to 70 percent "ANY" of any studio given. Seventy percent of which the people have said "ANY"? They ask 100, 200, 600 or 1,000 people? They interview men, women, girls, dogs or snails? It was some questions biased to a group or another? All of these questions are a lot of entity and a majority of some people fails to ask these questions when when be presented with statisics.
Some of a tongue is old and outdated but is exactly this like the fact the charm to read. Excellent, Excellent.....

This book, written in 1954, is like this appropriate today (perhaps even more like this, how is like this easy to purchase statistician because of our current technology) -- Darrell Huff gives people some tools to speak behind the statistics. This in spite of has the little bit in deliberate deception, in of the such things like "A Gee-Whiz Graph" (roughly like a graphic exposure of statistician can be twisted so that one can take any result has wished, although some statistics is not changed), a flesh of a book is considering his statistical reasoning, something these people today really needs to consider.
For example, each person the one who listens to a later studio that aims the correlation among sure lunch and of the questions of the sure health or the profits would owe that read "Estaca Hoc Trace Again", in that people erroneously jump of statistical correlation to the cause-and-report of effect. An example given in a book is the report in that was found that the smokers have had the low note in university; ergo, has said a researcher, smokers that wish to improve his notes would owe that quit smoking! Of course, the statistical studio that aims that there is the "significant" report among smoking and the low notes no tip like cause another -- perhaps people of draws of educational failure to smoke! My own theory would be that a =type= of person the one who is die to the smoke is given also to not doing well in pupil; in place of cause and effect, one has the correlation of the shared, third (and unnamed) cause. One finds these fallacies in an informative =each=day=; I have been reading my on-line informative, and in a section of science has found already two suspicious cause-and-of the reports of effect. Like this Huff notes, is not one statistical that it is in question -- is like this is used.
Some of some figures and the examples have used is funny been due to his datedness (I amour a picture of a surveyor asking the doctor that marks of smokes of cigarette, and a creature that cigarette of smokes so only me smirk). It looks mine multiplies each monetary quantity for 10, could take the better idea to the equal that to that a lot (has not been that it is in fact value, as it was not that an inflation of 1954 east (another suspect statistic)).
More to a point, with a help of this book, needs not having blind faith in some numbers or disgustedly launch all statistical was. A mathematics of statistician guarantees him to have can add, while you know like this to interpret them correctly. You could be pleasantly surprised to find that it feels more common that the mathematics is involved in this book, but a truth is abuse more modern that the numbers finds well with which some numbers have been calculated. Of course, once tongues behind the people of statisticians can think that is crazy; at least it calms it will not be fleeced for dud reasoning.

Like The Lie with Statistics for Darrell Huff gives an explanation of common statistical errors. A book is written clearly and is understandable to the reader without the mathematics or funds of statistics. In only one hundred and forty two pages a book is the fast and easy bed.
A book was published originally in 1954. An a lot of copious the examples were current at the same time to write, but is dated extremely now. According to an attitude of readers this can be distract, or faintly amusing. An age advanced of some examples any a text any hard plus to comprise.
While some examples are dated, some look of concepts to be timeless. Some statistical manipulations was still look to be that they go in almost fifty years later. An Author covers the wide row of statistical errors, or abuses. Everything of some types of errors will be familiarised to any those who partoriscano attention to an informative, or has seen an ad that use of casts.
To the equal that To the lie with Statistics gives a reader a knowledge to relieve statistical municipality skulduggery. If this knowledge was more amply widespread, perhaps advertisers, political spinmiesters and sloppy the journalists would not be able to escape with this class of abuse.

Of our schools regularly accidents in the by means of without the alone course in of the statistics, this book is for a general reader the one who is in peril to learn facts that is not of the facts. Not to teach you statistical, but teach you like the look was paralización when you have read a paper and see numbers and graphs. Of then more institutions those who inform this cure of the data little are attentive or significant, has to confidence in calm to determine is good numbers .
Some questions with statistical data am still appropriate today, and is impacting to @give the one who contemporary a lot of his look of examples. Some questions of sprains, averaging, and confusing correlation with causation all deceive inclusos a quite-has educated people, and some lies of advantage with a person the one who can fallacies of something and not being fooled. While learning the statistical would be ideal, this book aims a prime minister to sympathetic and critiquing statistical data. It is not more along or more complicated that it was necessary to be, and is simple to comprise. Still, if you do not know like this to value some of a simple data that you gone through every day in an informative, this book will resupply calm with sensatez infinite.

Like The Lie with Statistics, for Darrel Huff, would have to be reading required for all the world. A pill of the numbers are used all some time in modern society. Usually to finalise argue--after all, the one who can contest with "facts"? Huff Shows like a together same of numbers can be tweaked to aim three different results, as where begin and that use. A fundamental lesson has learnt of this book is that the mathematical calculation involves the together integer of conditions, and any number derived of such the calculation is without sense without sympathetic these conditions.
Also mentions that the mates have said that a flurry of the without sense statistics owes the incompetence--he offices this argues with the simple surgery: "Reason, then, some numbers almost always favour a person that the date?" Huff Also resupplies five questions (any one the difference of a five d is of dodgeball) for readers to ask, when faced with the statistic:
1. Those who says like this?
2. As it Know?
3. That fails?
4. Any one changes a subject?
5. It seats?
All this is to wrap up in the book with simple examples (any mathematical arithmetic further, really) and picturesque @@@1950s prose. Besides you pursue of humour of a start (the devotion is "My woman with good reason") to an end (on page 135, Huff says "Almost any one can allege to be first in something if it is not too particular that is"). This book is a lot of value the hours of pair of your time.

Although "Like the Lie with Statistician" it is quell'has bitten dated (that it has been it to it writing in 1950 east), some principles dips before is still valid today--if any moreso that never--and a material is rid in clear, concise, and still entertaining episodes and illustrations.
That often listen statistical bandied roughly in some means comunicacionales or used to try to try some point of special interest? "Of course" some people that quotes some figures owe that be right with numbers in his sides... Until you look in just like these numbers have been arrived in.
This rids is not for real drives on like the lie with statistics, but is an excellent text that informs a reader so that another lie to them using statistical and on like this to interpret a validity of purported statistical data.

Together with this saying "Lies, Damn Lies and Statistical" this book leaves an audience knows that there are methods there east distorts and can mislead. Like the statistician the one who knows that a pertinent use of statistical methods is lovely and uncovers truth or quantifies the uncertainty takes bit it concerned in an association continued of statistics with lies. This in spite of, this book for Huff is entertaining and is the classical. If calm bed calm attentively will see that it is not of the statistical methods that creates a lie but unscrupulous people that abuse some methods and explode the ignorance of an audience of statistical ideas. A message of a book is partorisca learn statistical so that it calms will not be deceived!

A book is roughly like the statisticians can have the habit of lie and mislead. In spite of a cynical title, is really roughly like this partorisca see by means of the constant claims for bogus statistical. It is concise, amusing, and vastly educational. I can not say quite a lot of good things in this book! A book has been written a lot of years, and like the result, some of some examples are dated, but these a lot of detract of a value of a book. Personally I find him quite picturesque. I recommend this book highly. It is one of some the majority of useful books can recommend to any to to those who would like him the more comprise that advertisers, politicians, subject, and defends use and of the numbers of abuses.

Darrell Huff has written the excellent resource so that they are struggling with the stastics run. While a lot an investigation is dated, some facts are like this some today how were then. Statistician any lie, lie of people. Example with which example, Huff tip a value to read any studio with scepticism. We laugh in some have thought to believe all see in TV, but surely all the studios are sincere, well? Huff Objective included one the majority of credible of the sources can be irresponsible and dishonest in that say his readers. This book was mine very useful in my investigation and I would suggest it to those researching some defects of statistics.

One Adds read !
Short and to a point, entertainment to read.
Although some of some numbers are out of dates, some ideas behind 1954 book anchors it like this relevent how were in 50 east. Probably even more.
"Like The lie with statistician" of the best comprising of a "truth" for behind a like this called "study scientific" in advertising and in a newspaper.
Is almost like this well in of the tips on like the lie the people those who there is not reading a book... For you you characterise to announce...
Of then is all the exposures the statistics, and of then all have to that "phase" (our products, our ideas...), it says that it is the must for all the world.

The university graduate in 1961 with a terracing of engineering of the highly estimated school. One has required no-the course of engineering was economy . It agrees a lot little of this class except the little red book authored for any one has appointed Huff and that this book was one of one the majority of enjoyable and educational books of my whole university career. [After a exhaustivesearch for a book, found that and] I grabbed the! This pound saved untold dollars to teach me to look at most statistician with the a lot of jaundiced eye and to laugh as maximum ads. I so only dipped my copy in with some materials I use to teach the class in the local community university of then expects that [will be able to use a book to discussvarious the subjects have related the politics of current day.] Also they are that it orders several copies for the presents that comprises one for my university freshman grandaughter. As well as if an author declares that the Yale the graduate is doing well in an annual salary of $ 24,000. All more is current.

This charming, cynical, wittly little book exposes a lot of some economic tricks, bogus technical, and the astute deceptions have employed for Madison Avenue, politician, corporate PR departments and included -- dare admit it? -- Scientific. I am surprised to find that some statisticians here have panned this book. They imagine his work is used so only for a good of humanity? Cela His mates are all upstanding citizen the one who would not think to deceive members of an audience, emprendedores, shareholders, or Members of Congresses? Yes, some technicians have described here is simple, and any professional would have to see by means of them. Thus subject, any banker would owe that see by means of frauds of common stock and Ponzi diagrams, still in a calm business section often read in investment and prestigious banks a lot the time has established undertaken that is to be take in for these diagrams and robbed of enormous sums of money. It falls expert for stupid tricks also. In all the chance, a book has been written for a general audience, no for professionals. And some professionals would have to agree Huff main point:
"A fact is that, in spite of his mathematical base, the statistical is like this an art how is the science . An add a lot of manipulations and included the sprains are possible inside a bounds of propriety. Often one statistical has to that choose among methods, the subjective process, and find a a that uses to represent some facts. In the practical ad is roughly like this unlikely to select a unfavorable method like the copywriter is to call the product of the his espónsor flimsy and economic when it also can say light and economic."
My mother was the professional statistics . It recommends that this rids mine in the tender age. I am not very a lot well in the mathematicians but I have not forgotten never some definitions of means, average, sprains, imposed of error, causality and correlation. A book aims several ways to plot the deceptive graph. Tip like this to select the sample biased, and as to take without sense fluctuations , small , random and blow them until looking the tendency. This can look the little subversive until memories, like the author dips it, "the scoundrels already know these tricks; the sincere men have that learns in entredicho own."
Some illustrations for Irving Geis is pleasant.
A book is in 46th press. His power to remain can be compared to this of another short manual adds, "Some fashionable Elements."

Is good to read the book has taken. There is the very light tone by means of a book. And it is the short book , incidentally. You will finalise in roughly 2 sessions.
Was happy to see that they are not an only person annoyed in a way graphs is distinguished, with an inferior yard was the dramatize transmissions. Ossia So only an example out of diverse. You woul be able to imagine was some of this calm, but a lot everything of them. One was bit it deep and has has had to that the read the second time to comprise the one who a falsity was.
Recommends this book because it gives lovely information in the readable fashion. The statistical is everywhere, and calm absolutely has to that know like this to separate a chaff.

My introduction to this book was for way of a esquired reading' ready for my undergraduate run of statistician. First bad impression. But a book is resulted to be amused to read, and enormously instructive. A material of class for my course of university statistician taught LIKE THIS to do statistician, but this book gave the very beginning that it comprises to some common methods of an abuse of statistics. Instead, for implication, he also teaches like the present information in like this truthful the way like possible. A knowledge do fault very like me statistical studied further in the level of graduate, and continuous do fault like the present executive Technician, constantly doing with statistical tools.
A book gives the start of good jump to an interpretation of presentations of data. Now, when I see the "Gee-Whiz Graph" immediately I know that some pointed fluctuations in a line or the bars are augmented, and beginning immediately to look for a real difference (bases 0) in some points of data.
This book is living test that the learning can be amused. Highly I recommend it to any one doing with or beseiged for the data has presented like this graphs, average, tendency or a lot another such average. It opens your eyes.

Huff Has found it catchy title to deceive readers to one that touches dry but absolutely fascinating world of statistics.
Packed With examples of a @@@1950s which look like this fresh as yesterday, these shows to reserve that advertisers and another test in the trick for misusing statistical. "Figures any lie, but figure of liars." It can be a unwritten mote of this book. Almost every day I see the Gee Whiz graph that something looks is skyrocketing out of control before I check some stairs. Then it results that 5 or 10 swipe looks 600 until 1,000. A trick is to abuse a visual impact of a graph.
A company could cut salaries 30, then later augment them 30 and allege that has restored a yard. Huff Explains reason ossia in fact 9 yard of has paid! Ossia One of a lot of arms in a statisticulator arsenal.
Huff, Assisted for Geis is amusing and developing illustrations, teaches that for prpers defend of statistical abuse, to aim that some tricks are done.

This short test is really interesting, although it trusts much more in uses that marks human of statistics that in statisticians he. You can deceive people to present statistical data for mainly two methods: any representative sample and inaccurate calculations, and both are enough, but a lot deeply, examined inside a text. Calm easily can @of which a book has been written in 1954 (half done the century!), But it is still the pertinent to almost absolute beginners in of the statistics.

If you are the visual person -the one who prefers graphic and maps to text- and has taken any course of statistician in your whole life, this book is the perfect access partorisca you. If you are the very polite statistician , but does not know like this partorisca apply your tricks in ad or publishing industry, a do one partorisca you, also. Finally, if you are graphic designer doing partorisca one of some magazines or creating maps partorisca corporate reports, also can have the plot of fun for just that @gives that now the plot of people knows in your tricks. Although a book is written more than fact 50 years, is still very current, because of a concept is aiming: the people still are trying believes in of the things that there is not to use elegant maps and unrealistically numbers attack.

I recently reread this book and am still enthralled. Huff Desires to arm a reader with enough of knowledge to something inappropriate statistician. Still although this book is almost the averages the old decade, is like this timely today like this never. And it is amusing to see place to the costs of some means of a last century. Any the one who desires to comprise of the world-wide around the his, and expect that ossia everything of us, would have to read this book. It is the classical.

This book is one drives excellent to the that the statistics is manipulated and misused. Speaking like the professional statistician recommends it highly. A lot readable and entertaining, a book spends for some the basic ways in the statistical are misrepresented, and like the little common sense can (a lot often) develop when the extravagant claims are has done. These books is the pocolos dated now ( was written in 1954) but a lot of lovely reading - a statistics of ways are manipulated has not changed many. This rids is not the textbook of statistics and is not aimed in university students. Enough, it is aimed in students of institute and members of some general audiences that want to be in his guard against when be manipulated of advertising and "studios". A last chapter ("To the equal that to speak behind to the Statistic") it have to that be reading required for any the one who law the newspaper or an ad. More than anything more, this pound teaches like this to apply the little common sense to try wild statistical claims.

Like this To the lie with Statistics is the fun and informative look in one was in that statistics tries decieve an audience with misleading statistical. Each chapter contains abundance of real-world-wide examles this resupplies excellent idea to some concepts. A book is the quickly read (only 142 pages) and resists the attention of a reader; both are necessities for an educational work. As To the lie with Statistics is perfect for a student of statistician of the start or any any one learns like this can be decieved by means of a manipulation of numbers. A level to read and the mathematics this more appropriate for institute or university students that for the youngest students. Using three randomly has has selected paragraphs, of the bad Flesch-Kincaid the level of note was 10.4; for this this book is excellent for sophomores or advanced freshman. Although a writing is the little dated (1954), is still clear and highly pertinent. In general, ossia the highly recommended and interesting read.

Is in the first place result familiarised with this book when I have done for a Government of EUA. They were 'hot and heavy', that tries present statistician in 'built a quality to our products' in place of 'that look for to inspect quality to some products'. A question?- Any of some supervisors or the management have known really anything in statistics, neither. With which have quoted this reserves the pair of time resembles 'disappear' of our Technical Library. I did not see it again for almost twenty years and then other ten years are spent before I have seen announces on . Graphs, Especially these truncated and aiming so only a cup that is charted- as the transmission of 95 to 98 can look like this almost bending it at the beginning looked. A saying has had was- "Figgers any lie- but the liars can figger!" Calm also can learn in statistics and phony maps, or perhaps really learn like this to interpret a data has presented. Some numbers the still work but a book does not resemble has been updated on some years; some examples of annual shows, etc. especially look wildly low and unless I can relate to them take was some of a relevance to todays economy. @Give ossia the bit of the classical, this in spite of, and can have some entertainment with him!

Has 2 reasons because ossia one of some better books to date:
1. It is an easy bed: the Minimum pages have flowed with the examples of common sense resupply a reader with information immediately. This helps a reader to examine any statistic or map, to all the cost a source, and determine is attentive.
2. Teaches You He " it sees By means of a Fluff"!: Some oppositions to reserve statistical maps/published to ask pertinent and, again, questions of common sense, which are not considered.
After reading this book, I never looked in the statistic or map a same way again.

In spite of a fact that this book is a lot on 30 years, is still a lot in aim. Some data of examples is quell'has bitten dated, but still do the good work in illustrating a principle.
Very precise the fund in any one classifies statistical to comprise and appreciate some lessons in this book.

Has had to that read this book for my institute AP class of statistics. Have enjoyed for real read this book. My dad has had to that read one same while it was in university fact 30 years. We were able to speak a book. Huff Was a lot of insightful but humorous a same time. This book helped to learn that it goes the statistics and a way that use his data this in spite of want to. It was the fun way to learn a lot so only in mathematicians but in a way that the people use that mathematical. Interest that included although a book has been written on done 50 years that his still has done examples and could relate to the things have said. It recommends it to any one levels of institute or on especially plans on taking or using statistical in your life.

This small volume contains the wealth of information that each member of our information-the society has oriented would owe that comprise. A better defence against when being lied to of the this to comprise exactly which has been said. Huff Resupplies this information in simple English.

The one who would have said concealed and the old book like this still would be that interesting? In fact.. Ossia Like surprised to join me more.. The simple and valid is some ideas have expressed in this small book. Highly recommended.
If so only was written in a Excel and Powerpoint time.... Cela Would do it the fantastic book!
