    Dr. Philip C. Plait sets the record straight on many modern hoaxes and myths. Appalled that millions of Americans don't believe in the moon landing, or that an egg stands on its end only on the vernal equinox, Plait hilariously spills the truth and informs us of scientific inaccuracies in our everyday vernacular.

    Steven says: "Answers to the astronomy questions that matter."
    "Good first half, boring second half"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Bad Astronomy the most enjoyable?

    The first half of the book was very enjoyable and I learned a few things.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Philip Plait? Why or why not?

    Yes. I did enjoy the first half of the book and the author is very well educated and conveys ideas in a manner that most people can understand. In the second half of the book, the author comes across as nit-picky and self righteous and belabors many points.


    What does Kevin Scullin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    No opinion one way or the other.
