Please join us for the next INFORMS Book Club meeting to be held Monday, December 18th from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm ET. The book we'll be discussing is Data Duped: How to Avoid Being Hoodwinked by Misinformation. Data Duped is a book about how we are commonly deceived by numbers in our everyday lives. From lotteries, product warranties, and weight loss fads to misleading headlines and social media posts, there is no shortage of confusing or misleading information. Numbers are used to manipulate our decisions and impact our lives in ways that may not be immediately apparent. Data Duped will help you avoid being fooled by these messages and to develop a sense of 'data defense' by learning what types of questions to ask and how to maintain a healthy level of curiosity and data skepticism. Any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
