Read extracts from The Geek Manifesto for free

Several people have asked me over the past few days whether there is a free version of The Geek Manifesto available. There isn’t a free version of the whole book, but there are several ways you can read significant parts of the book for free.

First of all, the entire first chapter, and the first few pages of the second one, is available to read via Amazon’s “look inside” feature. Click on the book cover on the Amazon page.

I’ve also posted two whole sub-chapters here on this blog.

The section on GM crops is here.

And the section on “The Limits of Evidence”, explaining why evidence is nearly always necessary for good policy-making, but very rarely sufficient, is here.

I hope to publish further extracts over the coming weeks.
