Whether you're a paranormal investigator, a believer or a skeptic, or simply someone who appreciates the value of hard evidence, this book is going get it's own special place in your collection.
Ben Radford's work is a treasure, and this book is no exception!

The world of physics could definitely use more passion, which I find in abundance via this author!

5 minutes in, I realized this grade 3 level manifesto was not what I anticipated.
As a conservative, I struggle to find one positive attribute about this 'book'.
This collection of dramatic rantings is, possibly, useful for someone who wants to study obvious examples of every single logical fallacy discovered up until 2020😂
I suspect every person who has given these rantings a positive review would benefit from improving their own critical thinking skills so as not to be so easily influenced by stupidity in the future.
As a PSA, I recommend a good starter book on logical fallacies called "An Illustrated Book Of Bad Arguments: Learn The Lost Art Of Making Sense". There are many more excellent books on the subject, "Good Thinking" by Guy P. Harrison is another good one, but I digress...
The author is representative of some of the most shallow and lazy thinking possible.
In no way should this person be seen as an authority on any topic other than how to turn one's verbal and mental dyssentry into fodder for angry sheep.
I should have looked up the author before wasting my money and...most importantly...my time.

Unbelievably well delivered, these women are top notch in everything from research to delivery of information. Their wit is incredible, I am so glad I bought this gem! If I was a cryer, I'd be laughing and crying simultaneously;)

This was probably the most enjoyable, and easy to digest and retain, lecture module in these course styles. The narrator was entertaining and easy to listen to, and the lectures were set up to assist the listener in imagining themselves as the historical people discussed throughout. It really helped to form an emotional attachment to what the speaker discussed, thus making it easy to pay attention and retain alot more information than I normally do with these courses (though I do enjoy all I have listened to). FANTASTIC!

What a special treat to find out this was free on Audible! Noone tells a tale as well Stephen Fry, and he certainly delivers, yet again, with these illuminating, educational, and totally juicy accounts of the Victorian era! Stephen Fry, you're a gift to the world!

Guy P. Harrison is one of my favourite authors. I found this gem several years ago, and it really opened my eyes to the magical thinking I was prone to. I've read nearly all of his books now. I was hooked after the first one I purchased! Not only does Guy know his stuff...he delivers it in a way that is interesting, entertaining, useful, and without arrogance. I also enjoy his openness to new ideas. He has a genuine desire to improve the lives of his readers, and gives them the tools they need to better navigate this sometimes crazy, and confusing, world. I have a copy of this on audio as well as paperback, so I can easily remind myself of his many valid points and ideas.

Cliché, cliché, cliché!

I don't normally take the time to write a poor review. This book, however, was such a supreme disappointment that I thought I should save others from wasting their money. Absolutely zero new ideas here. All mainly taken from the oldies like Wayne Dyer and Louise Hay, this author chooses to name drop Einstein and Tesla so many times that I started to wonder if she has actually really studied any of their works or just regurgitated other self help chapters from her personal home library. This was an often irritating barrage of repetitive catch phrases designed to steer readers to her website to buy more crap. Also, the cheesy and frequent piano inserts were extremely grating.
