Consumer advocate, investigative reporter, and bestselling author John Stossel is back with a new book based on his top-rated 20/20 segment, which debunks popularly reported misconceptions

America's favorite investigative reporter, John Stossel, tackles our favorite myths in his characteristic style and challenges us to look at life differently.

Myths and Misconceptions covered in the book include:

  • Is the media unbiased?
  • Are our schools helping or hurting our kids?
  • Do singles have a better sex life than married people?
  • Do we have less free time than we used to?
  • Is outsourcing bad for American workers?
  • Suburban sprawl is ruining America.
  • Money makes people happier.
  • The world is too crowded.
  • We're drowning in garbage.
  • Profiteering is evil.
  • Sweatshops exploit people.

John Stossel takes on these and many more misconceptions, misunderstandings, and plain old stupidity in this collection that will offer much to love for Give Me a Break fans, and show everyone why conventional wisdom -- economic, political, or social -- is often wrong.
