Going opposite direction to the current Big Data trend, Johnson and Gluck discuss the little data we consume everyday in their book Everydata. The book is a fresh and easy reading. Through several practical examples, authors covers topics such as sample selection bias, correlation vs. causation and graphics (e g. how to play with plot axes).
Everydata is full of anecdotes and interesting stories. Most of them are provided in a one or two page format. After reading the book, you will have plenty of data anecdotes to share. To conclude, Everydata is a must read, not only for you, but also for your boss, friends and family.
