Some say it’s science; John Grant says it’s bogus. Fans of the hard facts will welcome this engaging follow-up to Discarded Science and Corrupted Science. Grant takes a hard and lively look at pseudoscience, speculating on whether it’s just entertaining folly or (as many scientists believe), a threat to civilization. He touches on New Age twaddle, from Deepak Chopra to The Secret; the so-called power of crystals; crypto-creatures; the UFO phenomenon” in all its glory; and those who interpret the Bible as accurate science, history, and prophecy. This will generate enough controversy to guarantee plenty of debate and reviews!
