*Available for pre-order: a definitive guide to thinking clearly in a world full of overwhelming information*
__________

In our deluge of information, it’s getting harder and harder to distinguish the revelatory from the contradictory. How do we make health decisions in the face of conflicting medical advice? How can we navigate the next uncomfortable discussion with family members, who follow completely different experts on climate?

In Third Millennium Thinking, a physicist, a psychologist, and a philosopher introduce readers to the tools and frameworks that scientists use to keep from fooling themselves, to understand the world, and to make decisions. We can all borrow from these trust-building techniques that scientists have tested and developed for more than two millennia to tackle problems both big and small.

Readers will learn:
– How to gain a solid understanding of the facts that shape our modern world
– How to navigate through a multitude of possibilities and make informed choices
– How to collaborate effectively in tackling the challenges we encounter today
– And much more

Through engaging thought exercises, clear language free from technical jargon, and compelling illustrations drawn from history, everyday life, and insider stories of scientists, Third Millennium Thinking presents a fresh approach for readers to untangle the confusing and make sense of it all.

'If our species is to stagger through another millennium, we need to get better at thinking about how we think-and conducting high-stakes debates more intelligently. This book lays out, with superb clarity, the path forward.' Philip E. Tetlock, author of Superforecasting
'A physicist, a philosopher, and a psychologist walk into a book, and mix an inviting cocktail about how to think through big problems and make effective decisions in a Third Millennium age of overwhelming, complex, and contradictory information. A must read for anyone who needs to make expert judgments without being experts themselves.' David Dunning, Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan and discoverer of the Dunning-Kruger Effect
