Passionate and accessible,
This review is from: The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark (Paperback)
Passionate and accessible, this skeptical foundation book is packed full of examples of the merits of science and the weaknesses of human credulity and gullibility with respect to UFOs, alien abductions, witchhunts, charlatan faith healers and the like. All in all, I would heartily recommend this book to anyone, as the author's careful and compassionate style is likely to provoke thought rather than a negative reaction. The second half of the book felt a bit like a series of Appendices, and the book in general is not without a few minor errors, but as a promotion of the public understanding of science and a baloney detection kit, a thoroughly worthwhile read.
