13 Things That Don’t Make Sense

I just read this breezy yet well-researched pop-sci book to write it up for THE BARNES & NOBLE REVIEW, and my essay will appear there soon. But for now, I can heartily recommend it to WU readers interested in the many unexplained weirdnesses lurking beneath the tidy coverlets of science.

Vernon--you obviously possess a greater than average amount of scientific awareness, and have plainly devoted some serious thought to all these issues. All I can say is that author Brooks arrays his data and first-hand interviews with various scientists in an agnostic manner that was convincing to me. He's not grinding any axes per se, just trying to poke at these anomalies. In my review, I do say that I think the homeopathic stuff was the weakest part of the book.

Expat47--we here at the mighty WEIRD UNIVERSE are not yet hooked up to B&N;'s equivalent program. I know, I know, it's total cognitive dissonance!
