A Field Guide to Lies and Statistics : A Neuroscientist on How to Make Sense of a Complex World Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A guide to critical thinking in the 'post-truth' era, from the author of Sunday Times best-seller The Organized Mind We live in a world of information overload.

Facts and figures on absolutely everything are at our fingertips, but are too often biased, distorted, or outright lies.

From unemployment figures to voting polls, IQ tests to divorce rates, we're bombarded by seemingly plausible statistics on how people live and what they think.

Daniel Levitin teaches us how to effectively ask ourselves: can we really know that? And how do they know that? In this eye-opening, accessible guide filled with fascinating examples and practical takeaways, acclaimed neuroscientist Daniel Levitin shows us how learning to understand statistics will enable you to make better, smarter judgements on the world around you.
