Are You Being Duped By Numbers?

You see the "deals" every day: two for the price of one ... a lifetime of savings ... offer only good if you buy today ... low, low, low monthly payments ... zero percent interest! The sound too good to be true, and they are! While not technically illegal, companies spend millions of dollars advertising intentionally misleading numbers to take way more of your money than necessary. Tired of getting ripped off?

Part expose of widespread numerical trickery, part guide on how to shop intelligently, The Two Headed Quarter will forever change the way you decide to buy. Packed with handy resources, tables, charts, and worksheets, this one-of-a-kind book takes the guesswork out of buying everything from fruit juice to financial services.

  • Why 0% financing can be the most expensive way to finance a purchase
  • How women can be treated "equally" and still lag behind men on pay
  • Why average investors do worse than market averages
  • What conditions are needed to make money gambling
  • How much fat, sugar, carbs, and salt are really in the food you eat
