We are constantly bombarded with breaking scientific news in the media, but we are almost never provided with enough information to assess the truth of these claims.

Through provocative real-world examples, the book helps readers acquire the tools needed to distinguish scientific truth from myth. The book celebrates science and its role in society while building scientific literacy.
