About "Fourat Janabi"

  1. Fourat Janabi

    I am a reader, a photographer, an explorer, and an idiot Because of these qualities, I like to think I m silly enough to write a book I ve worked in Baghdad while a war was waging, in Bahrain while riots were ensuing, and in Saudi Arabia where women don t exist I lived in Italy where a simple task takes five days, and in Australia, where men wearing pink shirts is the new norm While exploring twenty five countries on five continents, and speaking bad Italian, horrible Spanish and passable Arabic, I ve befriended Americans, Italians, Brazilians, Australians, Arabs, Chileans and New Zealanders all while faithfully and stupidly remaining the odd one out.Through four years of craziness, staring death in the face on four occasions, meeting hundreds of beautiful people, and exploring new cultures, I now feel arrogant and important enough to commit my overvalued thoughts to fake paper and tell people what to think The culmination of this randomness, is Random Rationality A Rational Guide to an Irrational World.The first, and hopefully not last, book, of aspiring idiot, Fourat Janabi.

  1. S3 Science, Statistics, and Skepticism by Fourat Janabi S3 Science, Statistics, and Skepticism is a wonderful resource for laypersons seeking to differentiate good science from bad science Science writer and photographer, Fourat Janabi has provided the public with a succinct, accessible and practical book that is fun and enlightening to read This delightful 96 page book is broken out by the following unnumbered sections Bad Science, Good Science, Bad Statistics, and Good Statistics.Positives 1 A [...]


  2. We re constantly bombarded by those claiming to have proof of one thing or another with someone else claiming to have proof of just the opposite Those offering this proof, often scientific or at least scientific appearing or statistical, can t both be right So does this mean we don t know the answers Two conflicting sets of evidence are rarely equally accurate In this book FouratJanabi attempts to show us how to ferret out the truth in these contradictory claims.When conflicting scientific claim [...]


  3. Overall I liked the book, but I felt it needed better editing Also, sometimes claims were made without a supporting footnote, for a book like this that was surprising.Basically, he is showing how a poor understanding of science causes the public to easily believe such things as homeopathy and the organic movement, while dismissing such things as evolution, climate science, and the advantages of GMo agriculture.Things to keep in mind one study is never enough Metastudies are where it s at A well [...]


  4. See our full review over at Bookkaholic It s fully apparent that Janabi is passionate about eliminating subjectivity and ignorance when it comes to science, and wants to see reason and information trump superstition Yet all too frequently he fails to engage in in depth analysis, relying instead on shallow or implicit knowledge He acts as if his opinions are foregone conclusions his it goes without saying approach both patronizes readers and assumes too much.


  5. See my full review at bookkaholic what shoul Janabi s conclusions are shallow and predetermined The writing is poor repetitive overly reliant on quotations by turns informal to the point of flippancy, insultingly obvious, and strangely both arrogant and self deprecating Plus the book is atrociously edited Perhaps the best that can be said for it is that, at 91 pages, it s a mercifully brief summary of some controversial scientific matters.
