David McRaney Ñ 2 Free ead

I was a bit frustrated with this book I had high hopes I liked the first one and was very keen to get into this It was disappointing For one thing it absolutely doesn t do anything to help you beat your brain or be less dumb It s largely a ehash of the information from the first book For another it s eally sloppy on facts which is particularly offputting in a book that s supposed to champion science and skepticism It may seem a little picky to come here and point out that Bach didn t write symphonies there aren t enough people in the world for there to be a million angry nerds for every one fan of The Big Bang Theory and no AA don t ever consider an alcoholic to be cured But these are pretty basic factual errors that have no place in this kind of book In a few places I had "READ THE PRIMARY SOURCE MATERIAL THAT MCRANEY WAS DISCUSSING " the primary source material that McRaney was discussing he d twisted its conclusions entirely out of proportion to say something that they didn t In other places he was citing secondary sources ather than primary in a way that was just lazy Water Music really He couldn t get a copy of the original When Prophecy Fails He pushed the science beyond what it actually says in order to sensationalise the stuff he wanted to say about it which is pretty ironic in this kind of book Many of his gotcha moments were just bizarre Almost every page had some kind of I bet you thought X BUT SEE YOU RE WRONG where X was uite clearly false to anyone of average intelligence It came across as a slightly lazy first draft Not uite as mind blowing as the first book but still a very interesting look at the uirks of humanity I still think the first one should beeuired Revived reading for everyone and now I think this one should be too Each chapter in this bookeads like a blunt slap in the face And it s for your own good like when you find out that you Student Research Projects in Calculus re living in the Matrix or that you are actually Tyler Durden Blunt no lessIt s very fun and written in an engaging way which makes up for the pain And it tells you all about the lies we have to tell ourselves at every second just to survive and why we tell them and sometimes need themIt s also got some great food for thought on why we develop mob mentality and how to avoid itVery wellesearched and always making an effort to uote science clarifying which studies are still inconclusive the only off putting thing about this book was hearing it on Audible the eader sounds like some TV host from the 60s which doesn t match the youthful and often jokey tone of the bookAwesome I wish I could ealistically make and mean this statement to everyone I know Read David McRaney s books and then let s talk Facebook is a lab specimen for all the psychology issues he discusses in this book and in its preuel book You Are Not So Smart All that energy you spend posting authentic news articles to support a viewpoint in hopes of converting your FRIENDS WHO HAVE AN UNSUPPORTED DELUSIONAL OPPOSING VIEW THIS who have an unsupported delusional opposing view This makes them cling to their view harder It s called the Backfire Effect and we all do it to some degree Regardless of what your Love for Imperfect Things religious leaders tell you humans are animals and we grew up in societies a lot primitive than we have now There are certain ps.
