    Kindle Edition Ì Wrong eBook ¼ wrong mobile, Wrong KindleI gave this title three stars because in my opinion it fulfilled only half of its promise Why experts keep failing us and how to know when not to trust them It did a great job explaining why experts keep failing us but when it comes to figuring out when not to trust themwell the author doesn't have a clue either The bottom line is the odds of the experts being right are about the same as winning a crap shootThis book is worth reading to the extent that most people actually believe that the experts are right most of the time I once had a blog argument with a dreamer who chided me for daring to suggest that scientists taking government grant money would be bias toward the government's preconcieved conclusions Silly me Turns out this happens a lot than you think according to Freedman's research After two weeks of reading however I'm

    Kindle Edition Ì Wrong eBook ¼ wrong mobile, Wrong KindleI picked up Wrong Why Experts Keep Failing Us and How to Know When not to Trust Them by David Freedman on a whim The book really offered very little that was new or particularly enlightening it was useful as a reminder of how even well meaning and well constructed research can go wrong as well the realities of publishing and the ways in which the need for new and compelling materials magnifies the problem All of this is interesting but not intere

    Kindle Edition Ì Wrong eBook ¼ wrong mobile, Wrong KindleDisappointing not because it's a bad book but because I have always had faith in Science than is apparently justified Freedman makes a strong case for why even meticulous science is frequently dead wrong never mind all the management fads and junk science that clutter up the mediaFreedman doesn't have a solution for the problem just an approach for living with it The best defense against experts turns out to be common sense and critical thinking skills and a little healthy skepticism can go a long way

    Kindle Edition Ì Wrong eBook ¼ wrong mobile, Wrong KindleI like this book because it sums up my position on many of the science findings that come out regularly in the media be skeptical Be very very skeptical That said I found the book suffered from some flaws such as using dubious studies to back up points that the author wanted to make although he did mention that it's highly probable that his entire book could be flawed due to that very type of thing Definitely worth a read if you're not used to thinking critically or if you'd like some pointers in that direction

    Kindle Edition Ì Wrong eBook ¼ wrong mobile, Wrong KindleThere is so much information in this book that make you really start to think about what experts say I have always been leery about the information I receive from doctors and other professionals Like so many things in life there is never a clear cut answer It all depends on interpretation I liked having my thoughts reinforced with David's book

    Kindle Edition Ì Wrong eBook ¼ wrong mobile, Wrong KindleThe library wanted it back and with some background in data analysis I was struggling a bit The urge to separate and sort the data into usable questionable anecdotal columns was slowing up progress It's good information Just a bit jumbledAlso preaching to the choir so to speak I already know how much nonsense gets

    Kindle Edition Ì Wrong eBook ¼ wrong mobile, Wrong KindleI read this book only because a neighbor thrust it upon me She's a tea party fan so I was immediately suspect about the book But I tried to be fair minded as I readskimmedflipped The best I can say is that this book might be useful to someone who believes headlines heshe sees in the grocery store line tabloids I mean Or even those who believe that the latest scientific finding about xyz is the final word on xyz The author says too often that scientists deliberately mislead the public by publishing findings that are later disproved I object Science is never settled completely and many ideas are found to be off the mark by scientists who do further research It's very true that many findings are overhyped especially with the rise of the internet and social media where everyone has a say or a thousand says But I refuse to believe that most scientists are out of fool us So I read the damn book and now I have to find a tactful way to return it to tea party nei
