Dan Gardner talking about his book, "The Science and Politics of Fear".
Dan will discuss a new way of thinking about the risks we take and the decisions we make in daily life. Having spoken to psychologists, economists and scientists, he throws light on our paranoia about everything from paedophiles and chemical contamination to suicide bombs and germs, and explains why the most significant threats we face are actually the mundane risks to which we pay little attention. Never has it been truer that you have nothing to fear but fear itself. Dan is a columnist and senior writer for the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, specializing in criminal justice and other investigative issues.
