This is an example of non-fiction at its best. There is definitely research and background science overview but each chapter is a proper story as well. It was not only insightful but genuinely enjoyable to read this book.

Tetlock has partnered with Dan Gardner, an excellent science journalist, to write this engaging book about the 2 percent of forecasters who manage to consistently outperform their peers.

Oddly, consumers of forecasts generally do not require evidence of accuracy. Few television networ When it comes to forecasting, most pundits and professionals do little better than chimps with dartboards, according to Phillip Tetlock, who ought to know because he has spent a good deal of his life keeping track.

Few television networks or web sites score the accuracy of forecasts. It makes no sense to try to predict the economy ten years from now, for example. But he wanted to understand how the best forecasters manage to maintain accuracy over the course of many predictions.

In order to find out, he launched the Good Judgement Project, which involved volunteer forecasters who worked on a series of prediction problems over several years. After the first year, he identified the best forecasters and put them on teams to answer questions like whether Arafat was poisoned by polonium, whether WMDs were in Iraq and whether Osama bin Laden was in Abbottabad.

His findings shed light on the kind of evidence-based, probabilistic, logical thought processes that go into the best predictions. Ultimately, this is a book about critical thinking that challenges the reader to bring more rigor to his or her own thought processes.
