The Death Of Expertise: The Campaign Against Established Knowledge and Why it Matters

Book review by Deane Barker tags: society

This is essentially a long-form rant against the fact that (1) people think they’re experts when they’re clearly not, and (2) they tend to look down on actual expertise and distrust experts.

It was both inspiring and infuriating. The author writes well, but he offered no solutions. So, take it for what it is – a rant, and a good one.
