Indeed eople do lie as is shown by analysis done on datasets of Google searches An alternative title could be that the Truth Hurts because readers are given a glimpse of the darker and hidden aspect of human nature and the world much of what we see and hear is divorced from reality A great example he gives is the case of Barack Obama whose election victory was thought by many to be ushering in a ost racial world but in reality fuelled a white nationalist movement that culminated in the selection of Donald Trump I don t want to spoil the book for you and so will hold back from giving further examples but there are many insights uncovered by the author that will change how you view humanity and life It is only a fraction of what data science can uncover in sports Dusk (Rosales Saga, politics society business etc It is only a tiny slice of all the discoveries that have yet to be madeSeth explains data science and throws many fascinating insights from his studies at us What he doesn t go through is theainstaking work he went through in collecting o An excellent discussion Given the focus on Google search this could be described as a book on Googleology But it takes the reader into the rethinking that comes from understanding how with access to and different data new understanding of human behaviour is George Washingtons Secret Six possibleDisturbing as well but useful to understand how idiots get elected and howeople learn to be thieves and commit tax fraud for instance and what makes us happy and sad You have to read this book in spite of the seudo sychology A truly fascinating glimpse into our human The Caretaker psyche including answers to some uestions i would never have thought to ask Ever The book is engaging overall especially for a data scientist like myself But the author s annoying woke narrative left me with enormous doubt about a lot of what he supposedly uncovered from big data Here is an example Toward the end he talked about a research he did that uncovered Islamophobia He said that in 2015 he found 12000 searches on Google of Kill Muslims and voila 12 murders were committed against Muslims in that year in the US Therefore he concluded we can use Google searches toredict crimes I found it absolutely ludicrous that Clara After Dark - 01 people are searching for Killl Muslims as if Google is a command linerompt or a wish granting oracle Besides in 2015 could the rise of Islamic jihad and Isis and the crimes they committed against thousands of civilians in Middle East Europe and in the US have something to do with the rise of Islamophobia but the author couldn t be bothered with THAT data even if it hit him in the face It doesn t fit the narrative.
