    Relatively short article, doesn't require any mathematical knowledge:

    The short book "How to Lie with Statistics" gives similar examples of this. It's a useful little book to read esp. if don't know much math(s) (and so might never read more heavy books).

    Excellent book. I make all my private students read it to graduate from high school. :) Easy read, but important for the basic understanding of how statistics are used (or misused) in politics and the media -- and some science, as we well know.
