Customer Review

on October 25, 1999
Wendy Kaminer refreshingly skewers the prententious navel-gazers and self-righteous would-be theocrats who threaten our democracy. Her weapon? Reasoned skepticism. Finally, someone with the guts to stand up for rationality against the ubiquitous tide of nonsensical babblers, fuzzy-thinkers and holy rollers. Even the spineless media is blasted for its uncritical stance in relation to the more outlandish claims and efforts of mainstream religion. As good in its own realm as Carl Sagan's now-classic defense of science "The Demon-Haunted World." My short list of intellectual heroes now includes Wendy Kaminer.
