Mathematical Deception

While I’ve got you primed, here is a great video on the darker side of using math and statistics to confuse and deceive the public. This is from the Google lecture series and its a wonderful introduction to an old concept. I remember my first exposure to this concept was an old book called “How to lie with Statistics.” I think it’s long out of print. (note to self: no its not.)
Anyhow, check it out here.
