"A large section of the book is devoted to McClosky's on-going and largely futile war on "statistical significance." McClosky is not the only critic of how empirical statistical research is conducted, but she is certainly the most vocal one. Every economist who has ever estimated a regression equation should read these essays."
-From "The Independent Review," Fall 2002
Later she gets into more technical analysis, and the current controversies in the field, naming names and taking no prisoners. This is almost readable for a newbie (McCloskey is a witty and concise author) ... but only almost. If you read many academic economics books, I guarantee you will enjoy this one. Otherwise, read the first half or so, then put it down when you start to get bored.
