Book Overview
A leading social researcher explains why humans so consistently misunderstand the outside world. Duffy draws on his research into public perception across more than 40 countries, offering a sweeping account of the stubborn problem of human delusion: how society breeds it, why it will never go away, and what each individual's misperceptions say about what they really believe.
