Reviews

In a post-truth world, Levitin's book is an invaluable primer on how to sort the fact from the fiction * Sunday Times *
The world is awash with data, but not always with accurate information. [Levitin] does a terrific job of illustrating the difference between the two with precision and delightful good humour -- Charles Wheelan, author of Naked Economics
Deservedly a bestseller -- Independent on 'The Organized Mind'
Smart, important, exquisitely written -- Daniel Gilbert on 'The Organized Mind'
The Organized Mind is the perfect antidote to the effects of information overload. Loved it. -- Scott Turow, New York Times bestselling author of 'Identical' and 'Innocent' on 'The Organized Mind'
Daniel Levitin's field guide is a critical thinking primer for our shrill, data-drenched age. From the way averages befuddle to the logical fallacies that sneak by us, every page is enlightening -- Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit and Smarter, Faster, Better
Valuable tools for anyone willing to evaluate claims and get to the truth of the matter * Kirkus Reviews *
As a lucid guide to critical thinking about statistics, information and assertion it is profoundly welcome * Observer *
