Review

[Kaufman and Kaufman] have done a masterful job of curating a series of essays on science and pseudoscience....This comprehensive work can not be praised enough. Highly recommended.

Choice

...an invaluable volume that examines the cognitive biases that lead to pseudoscience, the history of pseudoscience, the reasons for its wide acceptance, how it is endangering our society, how to recognize it, and how we might reduce its impact....a tour-de-force, a compendium of vital information about science....The book is an excellent antidote to fake news and a handy reference.
