Did you ever hear the phrase there are "Lies, dam lies and Statistics!" This is an excellent read showing how its done...ironically, in those statistical studies conducted with the intent on providing meaningful and honest results. So watch out for those new drug studies that make great claims, but end of later having to pull a product from the market! So is it just a matter of how you look at the data, or is there something hidden in the process of analysis that is the source of the problem? This book is an important read for those who offen use statistical studies to substantiate their claims...if you're not a statistician, but use numbers from published studies...this is a book for you.
