Get the straight story on things like astrology, ghosts, spontaneous human combustion, psychic surgery, and ESP. You hear about these fantastic happenings every day on television and in the supermarket tabloids. Is any of this true or are they making it all up ? While many people tune in just for laughs, plenty of readers believe their outrageous claims-often because they simply don't have a clear notion of what science really is. So how do you figure out what constitutes real science and what is nonsense ? Quantum Leaps in the Wrong Direction carefully deconstructs five examples of pseudo-science-UFOs, out-of-body experiences, astrology, creationism, and ESP-and gives easy recipes to test other dubious notions so that you can tell what lies in the realm of real science and what more properly deserves the tag of pseudoscience. Brilliantly illustrated with hilarious cartoons by the renowned science cartoonist Sidney Harris, Quantum Leaps in the Wrong Direction is wonderful fun as well as illuminating science. This witty, disarmingly delightful book is for anyone-but especially for those folks who secretly check their horoscope every day.
