User Review  - Goodreads

Putting this one down for right now. I skimmed the last part because I started getting bored. I've really enjoyed Shermer's other work, but this one isn't doing it for me. I'll pick it back up at a later date to see if the break in the relationship was him or me. Read full review

User Review  - Christopher Carbone - Goodreads

Disappointing follow-up to Why people Believe Weird Things that, regrettably, never gets off the ground. At no point did the book push any of my intellectual buttons. Eminently skippable. Read full review
