Review:


"Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries is the only textbook for a course of this sort, which I think should be offered at every institution of higher education."--Curtis Runnels, Boston University


"Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries takes things that everyone is fascinated by--aliens, Atlantis, the curses of Ancient Egypt--and packages them in a way that is entertaining, but also shows how the scientific method works. It helps students to think critically about many of the so-called 'documentaries' on television."--Christa Abdul-Karim, Lewis-Clark State College


"I very much enjoy this text and the writing style; I appreciate Feder's humor and the way he explains things. Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries is accessible to students because it isn't dry and stuffy. This is a great topic--students are interested--and the book is written in a way that is easy to read and enjoyable."--Kristy Miller, Estrella Mountain Community College
