Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really AreEverybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book is a good starting point for psychologists and sociologists to find information and data with which to launch more research into. This was a quick, funny, and interesting read about how the internet has circumvented one of the biggest problems in psychological research, the fact that people lie.

The implications are profound, from the problem of racism in the US to child abuse, and even uncovering evidence that self-induced abortions have gone up in areas in the US with stricter abortion laws. And the applications are limitless, from finding the most effective way to teach children to how businesses can use big data to milk us, and how people can use big data to fight back. Highly recommended!
