Bad Science - Why We Sleep

Go to source ⟶

You might have heard about the blockbuster success that was Why We Sleep, but what you might not have heard is how the book is based on bad science.

Renowned statistician Andrew Gelman looks at the institutional failures behind the book.

So, yes, when the University of California hears about research misconduct by their faculty and sweeps it under the rug, this can keep their reputation afloat (after all, how many people read this blog? And even the people who read this can just say it’s me being cranky) and they can keep raking in that sweet, sweet indirect cost recovery from government grants. But they’re letting the side down. They’re not doing their part as a component of the scholarly enterprise.

Cheers,
