About this book
Subtitled, "Seeing Through A World Of Numbers". A painless introduction to the maths of the real world by the team who created and present the BBC Radio 4 series "More Or Less".
Mathematics scares and depresses most of us, but politicians, journalists and everyone in power use numbers all the time to bamboozle us. Most of it is commonsense, and by using a few really simple principles one can quickly see when maths, statistics and numbers are being abused to play tricks which can waste millions of pounds.
