KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is a book to arm the innocent against the wiles of the statistical world, which manages to supply the reader with caution aplenty, with understandable text and amusing illustration. The chapter titles give a picture of the book, having to do with ""The Sample with the Built-in Bias"", ""The Well -Chosen Average"", ""The Gee-Whiz Graph"", ""The Semiattached Figure"", and other statistical personages. A handy weapon for general consumer, businessman and social scientist alike.
