Mr. Huff's lively, human-interest treatment of the dry-as-bones subject of statistics is a timely tonic. . . . This book needed to be written, and makes its points in an entertaining and highly readable manner. Illustrator and author pool their considerable talents to provide light lively reading and cartoon far which will entertain, really inform, and take the wind out of many an overblown statistical sail. A pleasantly subversive little book, Guaranteed to undermine your faith in the almighty statistic.About the Author:
Darrell Huff (1913-2001) was a professional writer. He lived in Carmel, California.
