Celebrated voice actor P.J. Ochlan lends his talents to this brilliant audiobook which highlights the use and impact of randomized studies as a path to provable truths in classic "Gladwell-esque" style.
Social scientists have adopted the practices of more traditional scientists in the past few decades - using randomized trials to design policies aimed at improving educational levels, lowering crime rates, elevating employment rates, and improving living standards among the poor.
Andrew Leigh and P.J. Ochlan bring the lives of these radical researchers to life as their experiments to overturn conventional wisdom lead to breakthroughs like finding the cure for scurvy and discovering what policies really improve literacy rates.
Providing a fascinating account of key studies from across the globe and the challenges randomistas have faced in getting these studies accepted, Leigh reveals how these groundbreaking scientists have shaped life as we know it.
