Product description

Review

"Prothero's treatise will give the science-minded something to cheer about, a brief summary of the real data that supports so many critical aspects of modern life." --Publishers Weekly

"

"Prothero is a skeptic. So am I. When we call ourselves skeptics we mean simply that we take a scientific approach to the evaluation of claims. Science is skepticism and scientists are naturally skeptical because most claims turn out to be false. Weeding out the few kernels of wheat from the substantial pile of chaff requires extensive observation, careful experimentation, and cautious inference to the best conclusion. Donald Prothero is a scientist's scientist in this regard.... In this volume you will indeed get a reality check on some of the most important issues of our time." --Michael Shermer, author of The Believing Brain: From Ghosts and Gods to Politics and Conspiracies How We Construct Beliefs and Reinforce Them as Truths

"

Review

Reality Check is an entertaining, thought-provoking, and informative read. (Reports of the National Center for Science Education)

The shabby tactics of science denialists sparked this astute exposition of what we lose when science is sidelined. . . . Ultimately, Prothero argues, by claiming that clear findings on climate change, biodiversity loss and overpopulation are false, deniers inch us closer to catastrophic planetary tipping points. (Nature)

Strongly recommended for popular-science readers who want better to be able to explain and defend science and scientific methods to others. (Library Journal)

Prothero's treatise will give the science-minded something to cheer about, a brief summary of the real data that supports so many critical aspects of modern life. (Publishers Weekly)
