Very good. The basic premise is that being wrong is not all that bad. Sometimes it is essential in one way or another. ( )

This is a very good read that raises a lot of interesting points even if it has some major issues. The primary problem with this book is the author's claim that everything we think we know today is just waiting to be disproved tomorrow. That seems a dangerous proposition that can only lead to everyone choosing to believe whatever they prefer with no objective scientific perspective to judge the merits of different views. If we don't think there are currently any scientific facts, then what is the point of seeking knowledge? Even the author's claim that everything is subject to being disproven is itself subject to this rule. At that point can truth exist?

I kept waiting for her to address this problem with her argument but she never did. Still, I enjoyed the philosophical and informative journey of reading this book. ( )

This is a really interesting discussion of choice. She says need to be right is almost as strong as the need to eat, and then goes on to show how people, even when or especially when they are proven to be wrong, will fight fiercely to hold on to their beliefs. End of Timers who are confronted with the fact that the world didn't end as scheduled, cling to their belief that the prediction was right. She shows how, without even discussing it, impossible it is to convince a pro trumper of their errors in spite of overwhelming proof. She also has some interesting things to say about relationships, how when we fall in love we expect to have another person to see the world as we see it and help us live our best lives. Eventually, we have to realize that people see their own realities and then we have to decide if their version of reality fits well with our own. ( )

What is most cherishable about this bumper book of other people's booboos is its insistence that to experience error is, at its best, to find adventure – and even contentment. Schulz takes as her model Don Quixote, the knight-errant who was wrong about almost everything. "Countless studies have shown that people who suffer from depression have more accurate world views than non-depressed people," she points out.

“Being Wrong: Adventures in the Margin of Error" is an insightful and delightful discussion of the errors of our ways — why we make mistakes, why we don’t know we are making them and what we do when recognition dawns.

Perhaps the history of the errors of mankind, all things considered, is more valuable and interesting that that of their discoveries.  Truth is uniform and narrow; it constantly exists, and does not seem to require so much an active energy, as a passive aptitude of soul in order to encounter it.  But error is endlessly diversified; it has not reality, but is the pure and simple creation of the mind that invents it.  In this field, the soul has room enough to expand herself, to display all her boundless faculties, and all her beautiful and interesting extravagancies and absurdities. -- Benjamin Franklin, Report of Dr. Benjamin Franklin, and Other Commissioners, Charged by the King of France, with the Examination of the Animal Magnetism, as Now Practiced in Paris (1784).
Man: You said pound cake.  Woman:  I didn't say pound cake, I said crumb cake.  Man: You said pound cake.  Woman:  Don't tell me what I said.  Man:  You said pound cake.  Woman:  I said crumb cake.  Man:  I actually saw the crumb cake but I didn't get it because you said pound cake.  Woman:  I said crumb cake.  Man:  Well, I  heard pound cake.  Woman:  Then you obviously weren't listening.  Crumb cake doesn't even sound like pound cake.  Man:  Well, maybe you accidentally said pound cake.  Woman:  I said crumb cake. -- overhead in Grand Central Station, November 13, 2008.
