We pride ourselves on the scientific culture in which we live, but is it really so scientific? Is it not the truth that large parts of our society are awash with ideas and preconceptions that could not be further divorced from science, even though often they're wrongly or fraudulently described as "scientific"?John Grant, author of the highly successful books Discarded Science and Corrupted Science, now turns his attention to the bogus that too often dons the mantle of science from pyramidology to The Secret’s putative "Law of Attraction", from the widespread but misplaced certainty that the paranormal has been proven to the search for Bigfoot, Atlantis, perpetual-motion machines and human features on the surface of Mars. In a text full of witty observations, delightful asides and deft skewerings, he is unafraid to speak truth to some of our most powerful false beliefs.
