Previously Published as A Field Guide to Lies We’re surrounded by fringe theories, fake news, and pseudo-facts. These lies are getting repeated. New York Times bestselling author Daniel Levitin shows how to disarm these socially devastating inventions and get the American mind back on track. Here are the fundamental lessons in critical thinking that we need to know and share now. Investigating numerical misinformation, Daniel Levitin shows how mishandled statistics and graphs can give a grossly distorted perspective and lead us to terrible decisions. Wordy arguments on the other hand can easily be persuasive as they drift away from the facts in an appealing yet misguided way. The steps we can take to better evaluate news, advertisements, and reports are clearly detailed. Ultimately, Levitin turns to what underlies our ability to determine if something is true or false: the scientific method. He grapples with the limits of what we can and cannot know. Case studies are offered to demonstrate the applications of logical thinking to quite varied settings, spanning courtroom testimony, medical decision making, magic, modern physics, and conspiracy theories. This urgently needed book enables us to avoid the extremes of passive gullibility and cynical rejection. As Levitin attests: Truth matters. A post-truth era is an era of willful irrationality, reversing all the great advances humankind has made. Euphemisms like “fringe theories,” “extreme views,” “alt truth,” and even “fake news” can literally be dangerous. Let's call lies what they are and catch those making them in the act.

Wir sind die Summe unserer Erinnerungen. Stimmen diese aber auch? Haben prägende Ereignisse unserer Kindheit überhaupt so stattgefunden? Identität ist ein kunstvoll gewebter Teppich aus Erinnerungsfragmenten. Die Rechtspsychologin Julia Shaw erklärt, warum dem Gehirn dabei ständig Fehler unterlaufen. Und das Tappen in die Erinnerungsfalle hat Konsequenzen: Wir können uns auf unser Gedächtnis nicht verlassen. Auf der Grundlage neuester Erkenntnisse von Neurowissenschaft und Psychologie sowie ihrer eigenen bahnbrechenden Forschung zeigt Shaw, welchen Erinnerungen wir trauen können und welchen nicht. Ein verblüffender Einblick in die wahnwitzigen Mechanismen des menschlichen Gehirns.

Mo Gawdat befasst sich schon seit Jahren mit dem Thema Glück und was dieses ausmacht. Als Entwickler und Leiter in Googles Denkfabrik, Google[X], geht er das Problem eben wie ein solcher an: Er prüft alle prüfbaren Fakten und sucht die Logik dahinter. Nach unzähligen Stunden, Büchern und Interviews konnte er tatsächlich eine Gleichung für dauerhaftes Glücklichsein aufstellen. 13 Jahre später kam der härteste Test für Gawdats Glücksalgorithmus – sein Sohn starb völlig unerwartet mit 21 Jahren. Doch die Gleichung ging auf und verhinderte, dass er und seine Familie in völlige Verzweiflung abglitten. Nach der weitestmöglichen Verarbeitung dieses Verlustes fand Mo Gawdat seine Mission: die Verbreitung der Formel, die ihm geholfen hat, sein Leid zu überwinden. Seine Formel hilft heute jedem, wieder klarer zu sehen, die richtigen Prioritäten zu setzen und so zufriedener in die Zukunft zu starten – ob privat oder im Beruf. Die Formel für Glück beantwortet somit eine der häufigsten Fragen: Was kann ich tun, um glücklicher zu werden?

Wir leben in einer Welt der Informationsüberflutung, in der die Grenze zwischen Wahrheit und "alternativen" Fakten, Halbwahrheiten und halbseidenen Theorien mehr und mehr verschwimmt und deren Unterscheidung zunehmend schwieriger fällt. Mehr noch, Falschaussagen werden gerade über Social Media gezielt platziert und eingesetzt, um Menschen zu beeinflussen. Doch wie kann man sich heute noch verlässlich informieren, wenn jeder per Klick zum "Experten" werden kann? Wie entkommt man den Filterblasen und entlarvt Falschmeldungen? Und wie erkennt man, ob eine Aussage oder Zahl richtig ist? Bestsellerautor und Neurowissenschaftler Daniel Levitin zeigt in seiner Anleitung, wie Fakten, Statistiken und Aussagen umgehend geprüft werden können. Das perfekte Buch für alle, die einen besseren Durchblick wollen.
