Summary
Economics professor Gary Smith walks us through the various tricks and traps that people use to back up their own crackpot theories using statistics. Sometimes, the unscrupulous deliberately try to mislead us. Other times, the well-intentioned are blissfully unaware of the mischief they are committing. Smith demystifies the science behind statistics and makes it easy to spot the fraud all around
