MYTHS, LIES AND DOWNRIGHT STUPIDITY Get Out the Shovel--Why Everything You Know is Wrong

by | Read by John Stossel

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

To follow a similar book that sold well, John Stossel of TV's "20/20" offers another exposé, this one on how many widely held beliefs are wrong. Once again, the author's TV roots betray him as this book predictably dumbs-down its material. Using sound clips from TV interviews breaks up the drone of Stossel's narrative sensationalism but contributes little to his stated goal of providing listeners with the truth. If you've endured the TV show, you pretty much know what to expect from Stossel, charming as ever in this recording but not whom you want to turn to if you're really interested in understanding anything about how the world works.
