Title: Head in the Cloud: Why Knowing Things Still Matters When Facts Are So Easy to Look Up Condition: Used Paperback Author: William Pooundstone Price Fixed. Head in the Cloud proves why actual knowledge still matters Cloud is what the author calls the Knowledge Premium. “The ability to answer so-called trivia questions correlates with higher income and other indexes of a successful life,” Poundstone explains. “There is a real-world value to knowing things, above and beyond a diploma or social connections made in university.” He discovered through surveys that (to put it bluntly) “people who knew more assorted facts made more money.” Review "True fact: People who read Poundstone's extraordinary books are smarter (and happier) than people who don't." ―Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception "This breezy, pop-research overview of the decline of basic knowledge in the age of information overdrive could provide plenty of nuggets for journalists and hand-wringers over how many more millennials are familiar with the Kardashians than Descartes and can't name a single South American novelist or locate most African countries on a map."―Kirkus Reviews
