The Science of Fear

The Science of Fear

by Daniel Gardner

CD-Audio Publication Date: 21/06/2016

 
As award-winning journalist Daniel Gardner demonstrates, irrational fear springs from how humans miscalculate risks. Our hunter-gatherer brains evolved during the old Stone Age and struggle to make sense of a world utterly unlike the one that made them. Numbers, for instance, confuse us. Our gut tells us that even if there aren t fifty thousand predators on the Internet prowling for children, as a recent U.S. Attorney General claimed, then there must be an awful lot. Real-world examples, interviews with experts, and fast-paced, lean storytelling make The Science of Fear an entertaining and enlightening tour."
