Things can be Deceiving - "It Ain't Necessarily So", Ch 2 & 3

I have found yet another practical use for this class for people, like myself, who are not at all interested in being journalists.

This class, and this book in particular, is going to make me a more informed consumer of news, which I have to say is a very good thing. This book so far has demonstrated that "things aren't always what they seem." Perhaps even more immportantly, things aren't always how the media or even scientists makes them seem.

Actually, I also think this book gives me a better perspective on reality. It makes me explore things I wouldn't normally, or at least think about things in a different way.

In these chaptetrs I also learned how subjective science can be, and how that leads to problems in interpreting results of studies.
