Numbers Rule Your World

A good review of the new book:  Numbers Rule Your World: the hidden influence of probability and statistics on everything you do ,   by Junk Charts blogger Kaiser Fung.  The book, which I have yet to see, is an overview of statistics for the non mathematician.  On my list of books to review in more detail.  I think it is very important to have books of this type for the management decision maker.  Especially important as more statistical analyses appear on dashboards.   On displays of these types I often got the question:  Explain to me again how much I can trust this analysis?
