More warnings about statistics – but not by me!

I have found a book by someone else who is concerned about the deliberate and accidental ways people get misled by statistics.  It is longer and a bit more difficult than mine in places, but it is worth the effort.

“How not to be wrong: the hidden maths of everyday life” by Jordan Ellenberg.  Published by Penguin.

It deals with mathematics as a whole, not just statistics, but there are lots of chapters about statistics.

I just wish he would say “maths” not “math”.  But nobody is perfect.

I will probably share a few of his insights on my blog at times.  They are worth it.
