Who knew there was so much to being wrong? it's not a bad book and not a collection of wrong actions, although there is some of that. It is a thesis on being wrong and points out some aspects of being wrong that I never considered. All in all, not bad.
Schulz occupies a philosophical niche long overdue- a look at error. She examines why we err drawing heavily on the work of William Hirstein, what being wrong means and ends with a kind of therapeutic outlook. She notes that realizations of being wrong can be an existential crisis for the person who undergoes a conversion, a loss of identity and she explores several cases of it. This work is comprehensive and the reader should not expect a simplistic, Malcolm Gladwell style exposition. Despite the detail she is often hilarious and entertaining. Everyone should dedicate a week to sitting down and reading this masterpiece. I'm very glad I did.
I think this is a very good book on an important topic. The book made me more thoughtful about my fallibility.
One thing I really liked about this book is that I could learn a lot of new things in various areas like Psychology, Philosophy, Science, History etc in addition to the main points of the book. I think I am a better person after listening to this book and I hope that I can apply the things I learned in this book for a better life.
On a final note, I think this book can be a value addition to everyone. It has in great detail the author's perspective on human fallibility and how its benefits can be unleashed.
No. I'd buy the ebook and let my computer read it to me. At least it can pronounce basic English words properly. So ironic, given the subject.
Can we take it from the top, please? And this time... With talent.
Seriously- where was the humanity? I might as well have been listening to my Mac. And please learn how to pronounce the words "because" and *almost. " It was both distracting and detracting to keep hearing Be-cuzz and Oh-most. Producer, please do not allow this kind of amateur reading in the future.
