Publisher's Synopsis

Today, public conversations are increasingly driven by numbers. Although charts, infographics, and diagrams can make us wiser, they can also deceive-intentionally or unintentionally. To be informed citizens, we must all be able to decode and use the visual information that politicians, journalists and even our employers present to us each day. How Charts Lie examines contemporary examples ranging from election result infographics to global GDP maps and box office record charts, demystifying an essential new literacy for our data-driven world.

 With a new afterword on the reporting of the Covid-19 statistics.
