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

About the Author

Michael Shermer is the author of The Believing Brain, Why People Believe Weird Things, The Science of Good and Evil, The Mind Of The Market, Why Darwin Matters, Science Friction, How We Believe and other books on the evolution of human beliefs and behavior. He is the founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, the editor of Skeptic.com, a monthly columnist for Scientific American, and an adjunct professor at Claremont Graduate University. He lives in Southern California.
