Frazier is editor of the Skeptical Inquirer, and he has collected recent articles from his publication that focus primarily on scientific controversies such as evolution and intelligent design, evidence of global warming and the real value of vaccinations. 37 articles from noted science authors such as Stuart Jordan, Ann Druyan and Mario Bunge provide general (and generally skeptical) readers with stimulating discussions of a variety of public controversies and pseudoscientific claims. Carl Sagan's final piece on the relationship between science and skeptical inquiry is also included. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
