Fantastic book Brian Dunning!
His book is a written compilation of the first 50 episodes of his podcast of the same name, from the Web site [...]. It's almost a word-for-word transcript of those programs (in fact, I'm guessing he wrote the material first and then reads it out on the podcast), but it's still engaging even for those who've heard the podcast.
Each of the 50 chapters is only about 3-4 pages long, but he still manages to squeeze in a fairly rigorous reasoning process each time. The short chapters make it handy if you have friends who believe in homeopathy, pond magnets, the supposed benefits of organic food, the dangers of mercury filings or haunted houses. If they are open-minded, simply open the book to that chapter and discuss the facts and reasoning presented there. Because Dunning takes a reasoned view, it is possible to have a civilised discussion about the topics!
