5.0 out of 5 stars An antidote to garbage, 12 Jan. 2008
If you feel nauseated by the avalanche of "facts" and bad history that pollutes the internet and now even newspapers and respectable publishing houses, then this book is a real antidote. A systematic demolition of one piece of phoney theory after another, it reasserts the objective value of scientific investigation. Thompson achieves this with humour, a punchy style and a rigorous application of reason. Counterknowledge is necessary but also thoroughly enjoyable to read.
