5.0 out of 5 stars Très original et a conserver
Excellent, j'ai adoré.. J'aime l'efficacité de baillargeon, il n'est pas français et on le sent. Ce n'est pas trop bourrin, c'est bien lisible même si certaines théories sont complexes. De mémoire il parle surtout des médias, télé journaux statistiques mais aussi d'autres choses. Les tableaux et graphiques sont clairs,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Teaches you defense then attacks you
A good little synthesis of data interpretation, from statistics to charts to syllogisms. Word of warning though, at the end, pushes its agenda a bit too far, blabbing about media concentration theories and gets in a cynic mood; tone of the book shifts 180°. As an example, author says reality TV is stupid, well, that's his opinion (and mine as well), but I believe it...

Excellent, j'ai adoré.. J'aime l'efficacité de baillargeon, il n'est pas français et on le sent. Ce n'est pas trop bourrin, c'est bien lisible même si certaines théories sont complexes. De mémoire il parle surtout des médias, télé journaux statistiques mais aussi d'autres choses. Les tableaux et graphiques sont clairs, baillargeon s'explique bien avec autre chose que du texte aussi. Il cite de bonne sources, quelques médias québécois aussi, c'est intéressant. Finalement ce sont plusieurs chapitres différents ayant un lien avec le sujet général (soit savoir déjouer les petits mensonges médiatiques), mais pas beaucoup de liens entre eux donc on peut les relire en désordre. Ça incite au scepticisme

As an example, author says reality TV is stupid, well, that's his opinion (and mine as well), but I believe it does not belong in a book that is supposed to be about reasoning and analysis. Fortunately that part is less than a sixth of the whole book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intellectual armour for all, Jan. 8 2006
Inspired by Noam Chomsky, this book is a critical thinking how-to. Each section probes readers into reading between the lines, dissecting what people say in the media, and seeing through statistics. He goes a bit too far with the logic equations (perhaps I'm just intimidated by them), but the book serves its purpose. Although not original in terms of ideas, this is a great compendium and guide. Use his footnotes and bibliography for further reading.
