Being Wrong: adventures in the margin of error

I savoured this book – more books like this, please!  This well-written book explores our urge to be right (all the time), the vast diversity of our errors and mistakes, and our motives and responses to error – both historically and in a modern context.  Kathryn Schulz covers error in the context of science, psychology, politics, religion, and more.  Each chapter gave me a lot to think about, and her humorous writing style had me laughing ruefully about how true to our collective and individual experience of error as captured by this book.  Wonderful stuff.   (submitted by JF)
