A much better book than its title suggests,
This review is from: How Mumbo-Jumbo Conquered the World: A Short History of Modern Delusions (Paperback)
The title and the unhelpful "hilarious" quote from Paxman on the cover suggests this is all laugh a line, "news quiz" level of frippery.
Well it ain't. It's a fierce and cogent defence of enlightenment values and should be mandatory reading for this dim-witted age.
To be fair to Paxman - it is also hilarious, it's just that's not the point of this splendid work.
