Product description

Review

"A masterwork about intellectual doubt and better than any other book I've read on such bizarre subjects." -- 'Buzz'

"Shermer probes, with compassionate curiosity, the more interesting question of why smart people cling to bizarre beliefs." -- Anjana Ajuha, 'The Times'

"Skepticism is the agent of reason against organised irrationalism... one of the keys to human social and civic decency." -- Stephen Jay Gould

"This sparkling book romps over the range of science and anti-science." -- Jared Diamond
