The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe

Dr. Steven Novella

It's intimidating to realize that we live in a world overflowing with misinformation, bias, myths, deception, and flawed knowledge. There really are no ultimate authority figures-no one has the secret and there is no place to look up the definitive answers to our questions (not even Google). But, by thinking skeptically and logically, we can combat sloppy reasoning, bad arguments and superstitious thinking. It's difficult, and takes a lot of vigilance, but it's worth the effort.

Who should read this book:

  • People who want to become more rational thinkers
  • Anyone interested in critical thinking and cognitive biases
