    "How to be a skeptic"

    I was disappointed with this book. I was expecting a more advanced book. The information in the book is very basic. I learned this in a general science course in high school. Harrison claims that too many people accept information without examining it critically. He discusses alien abduction, miracles, Bigfoot, conspiracy theories, pseudoscience and fallacies and explains why we should ask questions and be skeptical. He does provide a few useful tools to analyze a claim but mostly he list things to be suspicious of. The book is short, entertaining easy read but provides no new information. The book primarily is about being a skeptic not about critical thinking. George Newbern did a good job narrating the book.
