Many people suffer from anti skepticism bias If I read it on my preferred web site then it must be true or If I heard it there or from that person then it must be true This means the individual takes no responsibility for verifying claims and they fall prey to the lying weasels who weaponize lies and engineer misinformation and counterknowledge Subseuently what Weaponized Lies will euip its readers to do is to know how to think critically about data and its interpretation so that instead of merely receiving information a person will scrutinize itThe book is divided into three sections I Evaluating Numbers II Evaluating Words and III Evaluating the World The first section is the most statistics heavy but the author does a fine job of proving clear explanations to the lay person The big take home lesson is that statistics are not neutral because of the fallible people processing them Bad statistics are everywhere and what you will learn to always do is interrogate the data to discern Are the numbers telling me what I actually need to know and How does statistical significance relate to real life noteworthiness The chapter on probability alone is worth the book s cover price and will likely forever change the way you go about making medical decisions and determining someone s guilt in a court of lawPart II will teach you to how to pierce through the rhetoric of swindlers who want to separate you from your money or mislead you to conclusions contrary to the evidence There are often alternative explanations that are either overlooked or undervalued This part also teaches you how to identity experts and that being an expert in one thing neither means that you are omniscient nor ualified to speak to matters outside of your fieldPart III ties everything together to give readers a framework on developing a critical worldview This entails a basic understanding of how science is supposed to work and how to avoid pitfalls of logic that lead many astrayIn a world where critical thinking and basic logic are in short supply Weaponized Lies is a book that provides much needed insight Certainly many will walk away from this book never again to blindly accept interpretations of the truth made by others To be a real critical thinker you have to apply critical thinking to everything not just to things you disagree with

    (PDF/EPUB) [Weaponized Lies: How to Think Critically in the Post–Truth Era] ↠ medca.xyz Be aware that this is essentially the same book as A Field Guide to Lies: Critical Thinking in the Information Age, published in hardcover in September 2016. It has been re issued in this paperback form in March 2017, changing the title to take advantage of the buzz around the post truth era, but doing little to address what is fundamentally different about this era (the introduction has been modified very slightly).

Unfortunately, I suspect that those who'd be interested in reading it either already know the basics or critical thinking, or, at minimum, face the world of propaganda with a healthy level of skepticism. If everyone read and understood it, we'd definitely have a different president, for starters.
