Statistics are all around us, often used to try and persuade us what to think. But how can we separate statistical information from misinformation? 

Tim Harford has years of experience talking about numbers, on BBC radio’s More or Less, in the Financial Times and in numerous previous books. Here he provides tools that any of can use to make the numbers work for us. “I want to convince you that statistics can be used to illuminate reality with clarity and honesty…The good news is that this is going to be fun.”

'Fascinating and enjoyable' (Bill Bryson)

'Now more than ever we need a book like this' (Stephen Fry)
