How Charts Lie: Getting Smarter about Visual Information
by Alberto Cairo Author
An essential tool for media literacy. People are constantly trying to use charts, graphs, and maps to exaggerate, distort, and lie—and it's on us, unfortunately, to stay a step ahead of the misinformation. This book walks you through spotting the major whoppers, battling the propaganda with humor and better versions of the "facts" and graphics it disputes. Perfect for your relative who's always sharing fake news memes, a high school student who wants to be a journalist, or yourself to curl up and read while you alternatingly cackle and shake your fists.
