Brian’s Recent Updates

Psychology in Crisis by Brian M. Hughes
"This book fosters a reflection (and, hopefully, actions) that are relevant (actually, they are urgent) to all psychologists. The message is point-blank and well-substantiated. A must-read!"
Psychology in Crisis by Brian M. Hughes
“The solution to the problem of bad numbers is better numbers, not no numbers. The idea that statistics are a tool for lying to people hides the fact that it is people who do the lying.”
