Good graphs are extremely powerful tools for communicating quantitative information clearly and accurately. Unfortunately, many of the graphs we see today are poor graphs that confuse, mislead or deceive the reader. Since there are many more types of confusing and misleading graphs than can fit in one session, the different in the title refers to different from the graphical mistakes I talked about at my last presentation to this chapter. Although the title and format will be similar to the previous session, the content will be different. After showing a number of graphical mistakes, we will end with some useful little-known graph forms that are different from the ones shown before.
