This 'book' could and should have been condensed into a 16 page pamphlet it's that lightweight I also struggle to believe that Thomas Sowell actually wrote it; well sober at least and the editor should be shot for allowing this travesty of an extended essay to be published in its current form using so much wasted paper It reads like something written by averagely competent undergraduate student as a final year dissertation or a really bad MSc dissertation I actually checked out the back page reviews to see if they bore any relation to the text I read The answer is NO The publishers have used uotes from reviews of Sowell's previous work and plastered them on the back of this pile of garbageI'm not prepared to waste too much of my time explain why this piece of work is so bad so I'll summarise as briefly as I can1 The authors sets out a premise on page 1 that is repeated throughout the book which is clearly false and then spends the rest of the book telling us why it's wrong2 The author is cited as a philosopher and criticises other people's use ofinterpretation of statistics but I have spent over 30 years working with statistics in a scientific environment as well as teaching critical thinking to scientists and studying philosophy The entire book but especially the first chapter demonstrates a really poor understanding of both philosophy and statistics and the number of basic logical fallacies the writer makes runs into the dozens Non seuiturs are rife3 Repeated assertions are made without citations and the text is replete with anecdote posing as evidence4 Where citations are given they are either anecdotal in nature or invalid eg newspaper articles or referencing someone else's book Neither of these is acceptable in what is reputedly a scholarly work Go find the original data and evaluate it don't just take someone else's opinion of that study as true5 There are virtually no references to recent studies6 Points are repeated ad nauseum in new chapters just when I was expecting something new that might piue my interest7 This book is so padded it could be used to upholster an entire three piece suite to call it verbose is an understatement much of it is meaningless waffle8 If you want to buy it don't make the mistake I did and pay the full price for the hardback Wait until it's 1p second hand and then buy it but don't expect too much and make sure you don't waste thn 3 4 hours of your life reading it
