I recommend this book to anyone open to exploring the meaning of "science' and interested in how this concept plays out in our current society. Visit their facebook page as well- interesting and meaningful comments and feedback, plus new work by the author.
This book was so terrible I couldn't finish it. Silverstone fails to understand how science works: it's not just about coming up with possible explanations for the world, it's about being able to show that those explanations match and predict what actually happens. It's entirely possible some of the connections he makes could be true - but can he prove that they work in the specific contexts he's claiming they do? He'd do well to take some college science classes, as well as a statistics class, before claiming he can understand the world better than the authors of the studies he's built his nonsense from.
