Reviews

"Engrossing.... In the spirit of Blink and Predictably Irrational (but with a large helping of erudition)... Schulz writes with such lucidity and wit that her philosophical enquiry becomes a page-turner."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"[A]n unusual examination of the virtue and peril of being wrong and of all the ways we think we know things that just ain't so."--Boston Globe
"A mirthful and wise diagnosis of what ails us: Schulz dances us through science, psychology, and literature in a sparkling history of (and ode to) human error."--Publishers Weekly
"Intellectualism made fun! . . . Schulz's call to embrace flaws and errors as potentially beneficial will surely draw legions of follwers."--Newsweek
"Schulz draws on philosophers, neuroscientists, psychoanalysts and bit of common sense in an erudite, playful rumination on error."--Washington Post
"[A]n insightful and delightful discussion of the errors of our ways. . . . Schulz remains good company -- a warm, witty and welcome presence. . . . [S]he combines lucid prose with perfect comic timing. . . . Being Wrong is smart and lively."--New York Times Book Review
"So, please take this advice: Read BEING WRONG, because it's the right thing to do."--Lisa Ko, author of The Leavers
"An amazing book. . . . I don't know when I last read a book as stimulating, as thoughtful, and as much fun to read."--Harold S. Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
"Schulz possesses playfulness even as she brings the reader to tears... Being Wrong has a heartbeat."--Huffington Post
