Spirit Levels Don't Always Provide A Level Picture

At its launch 'The Spirit Level' was hailed as a model for all societies and has been debunked in an article in the Guardian - as Ed West reports here.

In his blog Ed reports on a book written by Chris Snowdon entitled 'The Spirit Level Delusion' and about which Ed says: "Snowdon goes through the methodology involved in The Spirit Level and picks so many holes in the theory that were it a building it wouldn’t be passed as structurally sound by the most crooked of third world local government surveyors.

Having read Chris Snowdon's book I can heartily recommend it and you can order it here.
