Reviews

"Everybody Lies relies on big data to rip the veneer of what we like to think of as our civilized selves. A book that is fascinating, shocking, sometimes horrifying, but above all, revealing."--Tim Wu, author of The Attention Merchants
"This book is about a whole new way of studying the mind . . . an unprecedented peek into people's psyches . . . Time and again my preconceptions about my country and my species were turned upside-down by Stephens-Davidowitz's discoveries . . . endlessly fascinating."--Steven Pinker, author of The Better Angels of Our Nature
"Move over Freakonomics. Move over Moneyball. This brilliant book is the best demonstration yet of how big data plus cleverness can illuminate and then move the world. Read it and you'll see life in a new way."--Lawrence Summers, President Emeritus and Charles W. Eliot University Professor of Harvard University
"Brimming with intriguing anecdotes and counterintuitive facts, Stephens-Davidowitz does his level best to help usher in a new age of human understanding, one digital data point at a time."--Fortune, Best New Business Books
"Freakonomics on steroids--this book shows how big data can give us surprising new answers to important and interesting questions. Seth Stephens-Davidowitz brings data analysis alive in a crisp, witty manner, providing a terrific introduction to how big data is shaping social science."--Raj Chetty, Professor of Economics at Stanford University
"Everybody Lies is a spirited and enthralling examination of the data of our lives. Drawing on a wide variety of revelatory sources, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz will make you cringe, chuckle, and wince at the people you thought we were."--Christian Rudder, author of Dataclysm
"Stephens-Davidowitz, a former data scientist at Google, has spent the last four years poring over Internet search data . . . What he found is that Internet search data might be the Holy Grail when it comes to understanding the true nature of humanity."--New York Post
"Everybody Lies is an astoundingly clever and mischievous exploration of what big data tells us about everyday life. Seth Stephens-Davidowitz is as good a data storyteller as I have ever met."--Steven Levitt, co-author, Freakonomics
"A whirlwind tour of the modern human psyche using search data as its guide. . . . The empirical findings in Everybody Lies are so intriguing that the book would be a page-turner even if it were structured as a mere laundry list."--The Economist
"Pivotal . . . A book for those who are intensely curious about human nature, informational analysis, and amusing anecdotes to the tune of Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner's Freakanomics."--Library Journal
