Critical Thinking

How to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Huff

Statistics are one of those subjects that most people dread, but this book is short and uses humor (including lots of illustrative cartoons) to make it more fun. The running joke throughout the book is that it pretends to be a manual for how to deceive using charts, graphs, and numbers: but of course their real goal is to share the common tricks of the trade so that you can avoid being taken in by them.
