Review From User :
Long-time listener here! I have been anticipating this book for a while, and it did not disappoint.
I enjoyed the audiobook - Steves narration is easy to listen to while also being engaging. However, the encyclopedia-like layout make the printed version a practical compendium for later reference. It is excellent for understanding how the mind works/doesn't work, and how we all deceive ourselves into thinking that we actually understand probability.
For people who are just getting into critical thinking and scientific skepticism and want to learn about "how to know what's really real", but don't want to do this whole podcast-nonsense:
This book is a great place to start! It is well written, with just the right balance between entertaining examples and compelling explanations.
If you have worked through every episode of the SGU, monitored a wide selection of skeptical science blogs, and memorized all 24 logical fallacies in their order of disgrace to the human intellect; there probably isn't a lot a new information for you here, you cocky little twit. Why haven't you bought it for everyone around you yet
