The Skeptic’s Dictionary

Skeptic's Dictionary CoverThe Skeptic’s Dictionary: A Collection of Strange Beliefs, Amusing Deceptions, and Dangerous Delusions, by Bob Carroll Ph.D., was praised by John Allen Paulos, the author of Innumeracy and A Mathematician Reads the Newspaper,as “a refreshing compendium of clear thinking, a welcome and potent antidote to the reams of books on the supernatural and pseudoscientific.” The GuardianUK called it “A handy volume… [with a] coolly rational tone,” and New Scientist said “this superb work… elegantly written and level-headed… is a treat to savour.” (John Wiley & Sons)
