How to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Huff

How to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Huff

This was published in 1954 an I like theories that have stood the test of time.

With so many infographics on the web some insight might be useful

In one short take after another, Huff picks apart the ways in which marketers use statistics, charts, graphics and other ways of presenting numbers to baffle and trick the public. The chapter “How to Talk Back to a Statistic” is a brilliant step-by-step guide to figuring out how someone is trying to deceive you with data. — Wall Street Journal

Flash Boys by Michael Lewis

Flash Boys by Michael Lewis

Considering myself some what of an early adopter and sceptic of big corporations telling us the truth or acting in our best interest nothing ceases to amaze me so this could be a good read.
Apost-financial crisis look inside Wall Street and high frequency trading.
Manipulation of markets to benefit guess who? Not clients !

Flash Boys is about a small group of Wall Street guys who figure out that the U.S. stock market has been rigged for the benefit of insiders and that, post–financial crisis, the markets have become not more free but less, and more controlled by the big Wall Street banks. Working at different firms, they come to this realization separately; but after they discover one another, the flash boys band together and set out to reform the financial markets.

A Wealth of Common Sense: Why Simplicity Trumps Complexity in Any Investment Plan Ben Carlson

A Wealth of Common Sense: Why Simplicity Trumps Complexity in Any Investment Plan Ben Carlson

I so agree with this:

This book explains which issues you actually should pay attention to, and which ones are simply used for an illusion of intelligence and control."
