About the Author

Brian Dunning is a science journalist in Southern California. His free weekly podcast Skeptoid: Critical Analysis of Pop Phenomena began in 2006, taking the underdog side of science and rationality amid the overwhelming majority of noise in the media promoting pseudoscience, alternative anything, and unconditional acceptance of the paranormal. The choice between pseudoscience and science is the choice between the developmental stagnation of the Dark Ages, and progress. Brian takes every opportunity to speak on critical thinking issues at colleges and local groups. In his spare time he enjoys Jeeping in the desert with his family and playing beach volleyball (badly).

Brian Dunning produces a weekly podcast called Skeptoid. He delivers stories debunking popular myths and legends with scientific method. This book is just like the podcast. It is a series of short, easy to read standalone chapters, each dealing with a separate fable. This book is handy to have on Kindle as it provides a suitable level of distraction when caught up in a queue or faced with a short wait. Some of the stories are a bit dry but Dunning manages to put his case without becoming repetitive and so maintained my interest.

Being skeptic can hard when surrounded by so much hocus. This book will give you some insight into common myths and confidence to refute them.

Covers a wide variety of topics, with good information and references. I like that he leaves the option of drawing your own conclusion, when facts are insufficient.

This eBook was a BIG disappointment. It is seriously lacking in SUBSTANCE. The author TAKES ON the EASY OBVIOUSLY bogus "mysteries" which-have-been-solved long-long ago!
The author provides derision and ridicule, debasement (but little substance) as a DIVERSION from his LACK of SUBSTANCE. The author brings NOTHING NEW to the table.
The author also lacks in talent, is barely literate and hardly articulate. A very shallow eBook, grade school material.
The author reminds me of the crazy radical and venomous (nazi) "tea party" and also "jesus freaks" ,,, an empty-headed mob of near-do-wells ,,, non-thinking beings ,,, coercing indeed forcing their twisted misanthropy on others through insults and racial epitaphs.
"TAKES ON THE EASY ARGUMENTS ,,, LACKS SUBSTANCE ,,, LACKS NEW MATERIAL ,,, ONLY DERISION"
Reminded me of Dr. Joseph Goebbels ,,, all to do about nothing.
