A Field Guide to Lies by Daniel J. Levitin

I often scream “correlation does not imply causation” at the TV, so I’m predisposed to like this book. That said, it’s a delightful explanation of a whole slew of useful tools for critical thinking that will appeal to more people than just those of us who shout statistical clichés at inanimate objects. A Field Guide to Lies describes the ways information can be misrepresented, skewed, or otherwise manipulated to make “the facts” mislead your brain. Even if you think you’re already hip to all these tricks, I think you’ll enjoy Levitin’s charming presentation of the “lying weasels” and the sneaky things they do. —Nici
