200% of Nothing
From “Percentage Pumping” to “Irrational Ratios”— An Eye-Opening Tour through the Twists and Turns of Math Abuse and Innumeracy
In today’s world, ‘innumeracy’ is an even greater danger than illiteracy, and is perhaps even more common. Advertisers and politicians exploit it; intellectuals (self-styled) even flaunt it. I hope that this wise and witty book will provide cures where they are possible, and warnings where they are necessary.
