I have no interest in writing a book, but if I were to, this would be a topic that interests me. A lot of stuff society takes for granted are really just the result of either bad science, convincing marketing or some combination of the two. In Everything is Bullshit, the authors delve into a number of topics to expose why the conventional wisdom is wrong.
I thought the book was very well done. It reminded me a lot of Business Adventures, but for me the writing in Everything is Bullshit is more concise and the reveals are more investigative.
Topics discussed range from diamonds to seal clubbing to art to science as it is currently conducted. If this sort of thing interests you, I highly recommend the book.
