Review: New Age: Notes of a Fringe-Watcher

User Review  - Shenanitims - Goodreads

Another classic Gardner. Not as amazing, or dense, as his "Science: Good, Bad, Bogus," but still a welcome addition to the bookshelf. A voracious citer, Gardner's books will often leave you with more authors/books to seek out; this one is no different. Read full review

Martin Gardner's columns discussing the paranormal, televangelists, UFOs, and so forth. It was shelved at McKay's under New Age religion. Interesting read. Read full review
