Pick a topic, any topic. How much do you think you know to carry a credible conversation? The truth is, most of us experience serious gaps between our perceptions and reality.
This book uses hard data and accessible analysis to show that most of the time our beliefs are wrong. With questions ranging from “How many sexual partners do you think people have had by the time they reach 45-54?” to “Do you believe some vaccines cause autism in healthy children?”, The Perils of Perception tallies people’s responses and works out why those numbers are what they are.
