I Wish I Hadn't Said That : The `Experts' Speak - and Get it Wrong! Paperback / softback


Did you ever have the uneasy feeling that the experts are not ... well, experts? `We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out.' Decca Recording Company executive, turning down the Beatles, 1962 I Wish I Hadn't Said That sets straight thousands of examples of expert misunderstanding, miscalculation, egregious prognostication, boo-boos, and just plain lies.

The experts have been wrong about everything under, including and beyond the sun: time, space, the sexes, the races, the environment, economics, politics, crime, education, the media, history and science.

In I Wish I Hadn't Said That we see just how much the experts don't know. `No woman in my lifetime will be Prime Minister' Margaret Thatcher
