Another book highlighting the slippery slope of statistics - similar to How to Lie With Statistics by Darrell Huff. This one has some good examples of faulty logic, as well as mini how-to sections on lying with statistics. I think How to Lie With Statistics was the better book though. Both were written for the lay audience, but the Huff was the better writer.
