If I told you that A Field Guide to Lies: Critical Thinking in the Information Age contained a wonderful explanation of Bayesian tables, you would probably move on to the next book review. But don’t go away yet! It’s a highly readable, and often entertaining book, even it is about statistics. The author takes us through a wealth of examples in the fields of law, school funding, psychological studies, and apparently amazing coincidences, carefully pointing out how to spot lies and half-truths. The best part of the book is that the author does not simply rebuke erroneous usages of statistics: he adds amusing examples of how we could present our own facts in the most advantageous manner. This is a great introduction to critical thinking about numbers.
