Review: Carbon Dating “Sounds Sciencey”


Carbon Dating “Sounds Sciencey” by Kyle Sanders
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book #45 for 2015

We met the author at Mile Hi Con last fall and had a good chat about homeopathy and a bunch of other stupidity I’d had the good fortune to be unaware of. I’m glad we got a copy of this book. It’s funny, nicely drawn, smart, and well documented. Seriously, it has footnotes. And at the end there is a handy-dandy little guide for talking to people about pseudoscience.

There was one page-duplication goof in this edition, but otherwise I was impressed with the quality of the volume. It’s nice and sturdy and attractive.

Of course, I’d recommend this to the actively skeptical, but I think this would also be good for people who are kind of on the edge of skepticism. I’d be interested in seeing how the actively gullible react to it.
