At a time when popular knowledge of basic science has sunk to a new low and books promoting angels, parapsychology, and bizarre forms of medicine and healing outnumber sceptical books by more than a thousand to one, we need a voice of sanity. This book introduces readers to mind-wrenching probability paradoxes, recent attacks on the Big Bang Theory, and Marianne Williamson's success promoting "The Course of Miracles", which is said to have been channelled by Jesus. Other columns address E-prime, a language that omits all forms of the verb 'to be'; Norman Vincent Peale's beliefs in the paranormal; repressed memory therapy; science blunders by famous writers; the influence of Transcendental Meditation on the career of Doug Henning; a critique of 'Klingon' and other artificial languages; and much more.
