Bill Gates Book Recommendations: "How to Lie With Statistics" The Number Game

 Clearly Bill took this information to heart. 

Wait just a minute.. does he have one of those? Or has his heart been transformed, by his lust for power and money into something  shrunken and withered. Rendering it incapable of compassion, caring and real love?

GatesNotes: The Blog of Bill Gates

I picked this one up after seeing it on a Wall Street Journal list of good books for investors. It was first published in 1954, but it doesn’t feel dated (aside from a few anachronistic examples—it has been a long time since bread cost 5 cents a loaf in the United States). In fact, I’d say it’s more relevant than ever. One chapter shows you how visuals can be used to exaggerate trends and give distorted comparisons. 
It’s a timely reminder, given how often infographics show up in your Facebook and Twitter feeds these days. A great introduction to the use of statistics, and a great refresher for anyone who’s already well versed in it.
Thanks Bill!

 Perhaps we should all read this so we can understand how it is we're being played by the likes of Bill Gates. Every day.

  2. OT, it looks like Greg Bacon's Goon Squad finally succumbed. I'm amazed it wasn't cleansed 2 years ago with everything else.

    1. Thanks WaffleStaffel

      Yah, I checked and it's gone. Censorship has run amok these days- Hope Greg is well and maybe stops by to update?
      He's been blogging as long, no longer, then myself.

    Would you believe I can recall my mother giving me a nickel to go to the neighbourhood grocery store and buy a loaf of bread? (Yaya)
