Nontechnical survey helps to improve the ability to judge the quality of statistical evidence and to make better-informed decisions. Discusses common statistical pitfalls: unrealistic estimates, improper comparisons, premature conclusions, and faulty thinking about probability. Playful in tone, accurate in nature; valuable in and out of the classroom. 1974 edition.
