About the Author

Reviews

Freedman explores how people are so quick to accept expert advice and why it so often steers them off course, whether it's on the economy, the environment, diet. He breaks down how information is gathered and how probabilities are marketed as "truths." The nuanced text is in good hands with George K. Wilson, a seasoned narrator of nonfiction audiobooks. His deep and congenial voice allows listeners to easily enjoy his performance and understand the material. His cadence and emphasis also help listeners through sometimes rather technical passages that a less experienced narrator might not be able to communicate as effectively. A Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 5). (June) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

"It's a chunk of spicy populist outrage, and it can be a hoot to watch Mr. Freedman's reading glasses steam up as he, like Big Daddy in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, sniffs mendacity around the plantation." ---The New York Times
