Our poor suffering brains--they're addicted to storytelling, constantly seeking out patterns, and always prepared to justify our emotional biases. No wonder we're so susceptible to lies, half-truths, and counterknowledge (misinformation packaged to look like fact). Narrator Dan Piraro smoothly delivers Levitin's accessible advice on how to sort things out by interpreting statistical data, identifying reliable sources, and distinguishing between faux facts and the truth. The book moves smoothly from the theoretical to the practical. Piraro modifies his delivery to match the content, slowing the pace during the sections with hard-to-retain formulas and equations, and periodically providing vocal surprises--including a convincing interpretation of Sherlock Holmes.
