    Why do people believe bunk? And what causes them to embrace such pseudoscientific beliefs and practices? Noted skeptic Massimo Pigliucci sets out to separate the fact from the fantasy in this entertaining exploration of the nature of science, the borderlands of fringe science, and - borrowing a famous phrase from philosopher Jeremy Bentham - the nonsense on stilts.

    If you could sum up Nonsense on Stilts in three words, what would they be?

    interesting and informative


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nonsense on Stilts?

    I loved the part where he discussed Penn and Teller's Showtime show


    Have you listened to any of Jay Russell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    If you could give Nonsense on Stilts a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The truth hurts


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in science and knowledge

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry, the source of our inspiration, returns – this time, he captures the quirky enthusiasm of this goofily visionary adventure.

    Where does Journey to the Center of the Earth: A Signature Performance by Tim Curry rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Tim Curry was probably the best narrator I've encountered on audible.com, the story was itself seemed to drag out with little or no real payoff.
