Book News Annotation:
Taking up arms in science's counter-offensive against popular culture, Wynn (chemistry, Eastern Connecticut State U.) and Wiggins (Oakland Community College, Michigan) set out the respectable scientific view of extra-sensory perception, astrology, out-of-body experiences, creationism, and unidentified flying objects. Science cartoonist Sidney Harris contributes his wit. A glossary does not indicate pronunciation.
