Our investments are devastated, obesity is epidemic, test scores are in decline, blue-chip companies circle the drain, and popular medications turn out to be ineffective and even dangerous. What happened? Didn't we listen to the scientists, economists and other experts who promised us that if we followed their advice all would be well? Actually, those experts are a big reason we're in this mess. And, according to acclaimed business and science writer David H. Freedman, such expert counsel usually turns out to be wrong--often wildly so.
*Copied from here.
There is so much information in this book that make you really start to think about what "experts" say. I have always been leery about the information I receive from doctors and other professionals. Like so many things in life, there is never a clear cut answer. It all depends on interpretation. I liked having my thoughts reinforced with David's book.
