Publisher's summary

From the author's monthly Scientific American columns.

An eclectic, inspiring collection exploring a broad range of scientific thought from best-selling author and celebrated skeptic Michael Shermer.

In Skeptic, Shermer "turns a critical eye toward questions big, small, and trivial" (Kirkus). His trademark combination of deep scientific understanding and entertaining writing style has thrilled his huge and devoted audience for years. Now, 75 of these columns are available together for the first time, taking on a wide range of subjects, from psychology and human nature to religion and pseudoscience. A welcome addition for his fans and a stimulating introduction for new listeners. Skeptic is a must-listen collection from one of our leading science commentators.

Critic reviews

"Michael Shermer is a beacon of reason in an ocean of irrationality." (Neil deGrasse Tyson)
"Dense with facts, convincing arguments, and curious statistics, this is an ingenious collection of light entertainment for readers who believe that explaining stuff is a good idea." ( Kirkus)
