Editorial Review“Kathryn Schulz has given us a brilliant and remarkably upbeat account of the long history of human error. If Being Wrong is this smart and illuminating, I don’t want to be right!” (Steven Johnson, bestselling author of THE GHOST MAP and EVERYTHING BAD IS GOOD FOR YOU ) “Both wise and clever, full of fun and surprise...[BEING WRONG] could also be enormously useful—there are very few problems we face...that couldn’t be helpfully addressed if we we were willing to at least entertain the idea that we might not be entirely right.” (Bill McKibben, author of EAARTH: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet ) “[A]n unusual examination of the virtue and peril of being wrong and of all the ways we think we know things that just ain’t so.” (Boston Globe ) “So, please take this advice: Read BEING WRONG, because it’s the right thing to do.” (Associated Press )
About the AuthorKATHRYN SCHULZ is the author of Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error (Ecco / HarperCollins: beingwrong). Her writing has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, the "Freakonomics" blog of the New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Nation, Foreign Policy, the Boston Globe and The Huffington Post, among other publications. She is also the person behind "The Wrong Stuff," a column on Slate where she interviews prominent people -- from Ira Glass and Anthony Bourdain to Alan Dershowitz and Chuck Colson -- about their relationship to being wrong. She is the former editor of the online environmental magazine Grist, and a former reporter and editor for The Santiago Times, of Santiago, Chile, where she covered environmental, labor, and human rights issues. In 2004, she was awarded a Pew International Journalism Fellowship (now known as the International Reporting Project Fellowships); she has reported from throughout Central and South America, Japan, and, most recently, the Middle East. A former Ohioan, Oregonian, and Brooklynite, she currently lives in New York's Hudson Valley. You can learn more about the author and the book at beingwrong.
