Bobby Duffy – Thame Arts & Literature Festival


October 20, 2019


Do you eat too much sugar? What proportion of you country are immigrants? What does it cost to raise a child? How much tax do the rich pay? Are we more ignorant than we used to be?

Take a minute to answer these questions. No matter how educated you are, this book suggests you are likely to be very wrong indeed. The Perils of Perception investigates why we don’t know basic facts about the world around us.

Bobby Duffy is Director of The Policy Institute at King’s College London. He was previously Managing Director of the Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute and Global Director of Ipsos Social Research Institute.
