Some more book reviews have appeared.
I'm gratified that readers are excited about a more balanced approach that points out both the good and bad of statistical analyses. This was what John Sall (SAS) and Ian Ayres (SuperCrunchers) picked up when they endorsed the book. Wilfred Wong noted that "the narration is honest, impartially inquired from different angles." Amazon reviewers pointed out the book explains "the benefits and trade-offs", and "the power and limitations"; said it's a "fun book", "extremely insightful", "a joy to read". Thank you!
You see, when I was conceiving the book, I struggled with whether to make it "fair and balanced", seeing that several bestsellers in this genre have set examples of glorifying one side of the debate, and these have been as influential as they are successful.
George at AntiPolygraph.org has reviewed the chapter of the book dealing with lie detectors, portable lie detectors, and data mining systems for terrorist detection. His site is chock-full of information relating to the use and abuse of polygraphs.
My interview with ReachMD radio is now placed here. Even if you are tired of me, you should tune in to the bit about eyes grown on tongues. Unreal.
John Grohol at PsychCentral mentioned my SuperFreakonomics series while talking about "Bending Science in Service of Book Promotion". I am preparing a response to his article.
Looking ahead, I am scheduled to be signing books at McGraw-Hill's booth #3440 at Book Expo in New York, May 26, 11 am-noon.
