9780006531494: I Wish I Hadn't Said That: The Experts Speak - and Get it Wrong!

Did you ever have the uneasy feeling that the experts are not ...well, experts? 'We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out.' Decca Recording Company executive, turning down the Beatles, 1962 I Wish I Hadn't Said That sets straight thousands of examples of expert misunderstanding, miscalculation, egregious prognostication, boo-boos, and just plain lies. The experts have been wrong about everything under, including and beyond the sun: time, space, the sexes, the races, the environment, economics, politics, crime, education, the media, history and science. In I Wish I Hadn't Said That we see just how much the experts don't know. 'No woman in my lifetime will be Prime Minister' Margaret Thatcher
