Reviews

  • Deservedly a bestseller

    Independent on 'The Organized Mind'
  • Daniel Levitin's field guide is a critical thinking primer for our shrill, data-drenched age. From the way averages befuddle to the logical fallacies that sneak by us, every page is enlightening

    Charles Duhigg, author of 'The Power of Habit' and 'Smarter, Faster, Better'
  • Dan Levitin has more insights per page than any other neuroscientist I know

    Daniel Gilbert on 'The Organized Mind'
  • The world is awash with data, but not always with accurate information. A Field Guide to Lies does a terrific job of illustrating the difference between the two with precision-and delightful good humour

    Charles Wheelan, author of 'Naked Economics'
  • Valuable tools for anyone willing to evaluate claims and get to the truth of the matter

    Kirkus Reviews
  • Just as Strunk and White taught us how to communicate better, the Field Guide to Lies is an indispensable guide to thinking better.

  • I could not put this book down. I am so impressed with Levitin's writing style, which is clear and simple, unlike much of the murky stuff that is written by statisticians and many others.

  • This is a wonderful book. It covers so many of the insights of science, logic, and statistics that the public needs to know, yet are sadly neglected in the education that most of us receive.

    Edward K. Cheng, Tarkington Chair of Teaching Excellence and professor of law at Vanderbilt Law School
  • Insightful and entertaining-an excellent work

    Gregg Gascon, Biomedical Informatics, Ohio State University
  • A valuable primer on critical thinking that convincingly illustrates the prevalence of misinformation in everyday life
