Book review: Everybody Lies


Exposing truths.

Upon reading the blurb for this book, I was immediately intrigued.

Written by a former Google data scientist, it promises to unveil humanity’s deepest secrets. Stephens-Davidowitz has spent his career analysing the internet’s data, particularly Google searches, to see what can
be revealed about ourselves.

While the results themselves are fascinating, the book can be a little dry at times, with sections dedicated to an explanation of ‘big data’ and its value.

Even so, the release uncovers some important (and some terrifying) truths about ourselves and the world we live in, exposing humankind’s lies around sex, racism and behaviour.
