Review: The Borderlands of Science: Where Sense Meets Nonsense

User Review  - Leonardo - Goodreads

Wordy, uneven, repetitive; presumptuous at times. Even though the author is a professional editor, this book would hugely benefit from more professional editing. And the title is misleading: the ... Read full review

User Review  - Sariene - Goodreads

I'm a fan of Michael Shermer, and I hate to rate a book of his so poorly, but I see no way around it, as this book is badly put together. I could barely keep my attention from wandering away through ... Read full review

Review: The Borderlands of Science: Where Sense Meets Nonsense

User Review  - Warren Benton - Goodreads

This book discusses how some realms of science aren't really scientific. Somethings they have fully figured out yet and are still running on theory with little to no evidence.

Review: The Borderlands of Science: Where Sense Meets Nonsense

User Review  - Jim Myers - Goodreads

An even and thoughtful exploration of science that reaches to the fridge, and nonsense that skitters out into the darkness of absurdity. With so much confusion about what really is science, this book helps clarify this distinction while honestly pointing out some of science's missteps. Read full review

Review: The Borderlands of Science: Where Sense Meets Nonsense

User Review  - Alissa Thorne - Goodreads

This book was a big disappointment. From the title and the introduction, I got the impression that this book would make a skeptical analysis of phenomena for which the scientific evidence is ... Read full review
