Customary blog post about my book

It’s nice to be in such esteemed company. Apparently, customers who downloaded the free pre-launch electronic sampler of my book Deceived Wisdom have also grabbed a copy of one or more of the following popular science books:

“How Many Friends Does One Person Need?” by Robin Dunbar (His theory gets a mention in DW!)

“Bad Pharma: How drug companies mislead doctors” by Ben Goldacre (I tried to avoid overlapping with BG in DW although I do cover a couple of medical matters.)

“The Self Illusion: Why There is No You Inside” by Bruce Hood (There should be a book called “The Elf Illusion” too, for those who worry about their inner Santa.)

“Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error” by Kathryn Schultz (If you’ve ever trotted out any of the deceived wisdom in my book then this one will hit home too.)

“Rip It Up” by Richard Wiseman (One of this unleash your potential type books but this time by one of the brightest science writers rather than some random business person.)

Electronic version of Deceived Wisdom now available from Sciencebase in PDF, ePub and mobi formats.
