" The "Sage of Palo Alto" delivers once again. Sowell is able to glean information from literally thousands of sources and provide them in a succinct manner. The book properly illustrates many of the false beliefs the general public holds and the misleading statistics behind them. Like all of Sowell's books, it is very thought provoking, but not an electrifying experience. He is the most dispassionate, yet still intriguing and fun, author I have ever come across. "
