    Hardcover ´ Calling Bullshit Epub Ì calling pdf, bullshit book, Calling Bullshit ePUBBrandolini’s law which states that “the amount of energy needed to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than that needed to produce it” explains why there is so much bullshit in the world As Uriel Fanelli put it “an idiot can create bullshit than you could ever hope to refute”So creating bullshit is easy; refuting it is hard And it is precisely this asymmetry that explains why bullshit persists and how it can even grow over time So how can one ho
