"A gripping analysis of America's anti-science crisis."
-Starred Kirkus Review for "remarkable merit"
"every voter in the country should read it."
"In this incredible book, Otto explores the devaluation of science in America. His exhaustively researched text explains the three-pronged attack on science."
-Starred Publishers Weekly review for "outstanding quality"
"The solutions Otto suggests require a great deal of dedication and optimism. Nonetheless, the problems he identifies are quite real. Fool Me Twice offers a compelling consideration of the United States' political estrangement from science. One would very much like to attend to Otto's equally compelling hopes." -Science Magazine
If you want climate change to matter in policy and science more broadly to regain its seat at the table of policymakers, you have to do something and not just wish it. And number one on your list of things to do is to read Fool Me Twice.
