Innumeracy : Mathematical Illiteracy and Its Consequences Paulos, J.A. Hill and Wang (August 18, 2001)

Paulos shows how our inability to deal rationally with large numbers and probabilities results in confusion on many levels - personal, governmental, susceptibility to pseudo-science.  Entertaining, accessible to everyone, will improve critical thinking.  You do not have to be a math wizard to appreciate this book.
