Introducing Statistics: A Graphic Guide

by Graphic Guide, A Author, Eileen Magnello Author and Borin Van Loon Author

The shaper of the world around us—statistics. Its use allows us to better understand the world around us. However, the information we get from statistics passed around from the media can distort our perceptions. With the help of Vorin Van Loon's engaging, at times comical illustrations, Eileen Magnello walks us through the history behind statistics as we know it today, from the ancient Babylonians to the first appearance of its modern usage in Europe.
