Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of A Field Guide to Lies by David Levitin, read by Dan Piraro.
The best-selling author of The Organized Mind explains and debunks statistics in the information age.
We live in a world of information overload. Facts and figures on absolutely everything are at our fingertips but are too often biased, distorted, or outright lies. From unemployment figures to voting polls, IQ tests to divorce rates, we're bombarded by seemingly plausible statistics on how people live and what they think. In a world where anyone can become an expert at the click of a button, being able to see through the tricks played with statistics is more necessary than ever before. Daniel Levitin teaches us how to effectively ask ourselves: can we really know that? And how do they know that?
In this eye-opening, entertaining and accessible guide filled with fascinating examples and practical takeaways, acclaimed neuroscientist Daniel Levitin shows us how learning to understand statistics will enable you to make quicker, better-informed decisions to simplify your life.

Ignore it at your own cost!

Definitely one of the top 10 books I have listened to recently. Well thought out and presented.
