Top Customer Reviews
Discussions in this book exemplify my personal experiences overcoming the hurdles of disapproval of mainstream scientists. The book discusses many commonly held mistaken ideas of nature. These mistaken ideas are prevalent due to the reluctance of many scientists to permit new and different ideas to appear in print.
I recommend this book highly to anyone interested in the nature of rational thought as applied to our understanding of the physical universe and, in general, all of human activity.
I highly recommend this book as an outstanding learning tool for secondary and college level students, and for reading by ordinary citizens who are searching for rational political and social discourse.

First, here's where I'm coming from. As a person who believes America today is an example of greed gone amok in capitalism, I prefer a capitalist government that has checks and balances. Therefore, I usually side with liberal policies. However, I'm a person who believes in devouring the thinking and arguments on both sides of an issue, so I'm regularly scouting for books on the conservative side that might provide some new insight, a new way of thinking that might influence how I see things.
I'm perpetually disappointed, and this book is no exception. The reviewer who said "Aranoff does not engage in political rhetoric, and he does not accept extreme arguments from either the left or right" is just plain lying!
I read just about everything I could from the sample pages and do not apologize for writing this review without bothering to read the whole book. There's plenty in the extensive samples to make an informed judgment that this book is not only the same old tired criticism of liberals and hard-right apology, but also, it can hardly be something one would consider even-handed or fair.Read more ›
