Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Superstition, and Other Confusions of Our Time by Michael Shermer

In league with Carl Sagan, who touted the scientific method as baloney detector, and with foreword author Stephen Jay Gould (on The Positive Power of Skepticism), the Skeptics Society director draws on Skeptic magazine essays to deconstruct the pseudoscience of creationism, recovered memories, and UFOs as well as the pseudohistory spewed by Holocaust deniers. Cogita tute, think for yourself, despite a mind evolved to discern causal patterns lurking everywhere. Cloth edition reviewed July 1997. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
