Gerald Jones updates Mark Twain's adage "lies, damned lies, and statistics" to its modern sequel about charts and graphics. Every corporate director subjected to PowerPoint presentations needs to read this for his/her own protection. - Richard E. Cavanagh, Past President and CEO, The Conference Board, Inc.
Who would have expected a book on charts and graphs to be so entertaining? It's an exceptionally fun read (really) and a must-own reference for anyone who presents or analyzes data. Gerald uses wit and humor to explain concepts we often take for granted and succeeds at teaching us how to deliver more effective presentations--while warning us to beware of those who might lie using the exact same techniques! - Anthony Hitt, CEO, Engel & Völkers North America
It broke our hearts to see this book come out, because it was the one we were planning to write. Having read it, however, we doubt we could have done a better job. Jones addresses fundamental issues of visual perception in a style that is clear, concise, and amusing. - Robin Wolfson, President, Datastep Development
The author is challenging you to formulate penetrating questions about the information being used and the credibility and reliability of that data. Is it being used properly or is it distorted in some way? If there's distortion, was it intentional or unintentional? If intentional, questions of professional ethics and possibly fraud come into play. - Frederick Gallegos, CGFM, CDE, U.S. Government auditor (retired)
You can fool some of the people all of the time. Obviously they didn't read this book! Seriously, being able to paint your vision with clarity is the difference between being a manager and being a leader. - Peter Nathan, PMP, Author of PMP Certification for Dummies
From the Author
I'm particularly proud of the new material in this third edition. There's a nontechnical overview of technical analysis that gives you the tools you need to begin to explore this powerful method of understanding stock market behavior. There's enough about the inherent flaws of viewports and dashboard displays to make you wary of those charts that are generated for you on a daily basis by robots. And I haven't seen a comprehensive discussion of financial proofreading anywhere, so here it is!
