I can't say enough about this book what an excellent beginners' guide to the replication crisis and the perils in which Big Science finds itself through pursuing its own miguided priorities I especially like the sections on p hacking and on how the problems could be solved by short circuiting some of the dysfunctional processes currently in existence which sustain fraud and deceit as well as ordinary publication bias And I really love that Ritchie recommends grant distribution by lottery I suggested this for ARC grants in Australia back in around 2014 to a horrified response As someone who 'collects' frauds and fakes this book was a rich source of future teaching materials It would be a great baccalaureate textbook for any science based course of studies

Science FictionsOm austerity economics to the anti vaccination movement and occasionally count the cost of them in human livesStuart Ritchie has been at the vanguard of a new reform movement within science aimed at exposing and fixing these problems In this vital investigation he gathers together the evidence of their full and shocking extent and proposes a host of remedies to save and protect this most valuable of human endeavours from itself. Well written if somewhat depressing account of everything that is wrong with modern research Every scandal you may have heard of and many that you may have missed is dissected by the author through an excruciating scientific post mortem Fortunately we are not left to despair the author outlines steps that scientific community can take to get out of the massive hole into which it's been dragged over the last few decades by misguided incentives All in all a thoroughly enjoyable and informative read for anyone interested in science as a process and as a social construct
