    1. There's a lot of junk science about, and Little Black Book of Junk Science does a fair job of exposing it. There is probably something in this book to piss almost everybody off.My main problem with it is that, at 62 pages, it is too short. I think that most of the information in it is true, but things that the book leaves unsaid should be included.Take for example the entry for DDT:DDT has enriched environmentalists all over the world even though its acute toxicity is incredibly low. How low? It [...]


    2. While obviously pursuing the right cause, the book isn't very convincing. More often than not no sources are cited, and when they are, often it's for historical anecdotes such as law cases and not for underlying scientific claims. The tone of the narrative doesn't strike me as objective, but that, admittedly, might be just the reason for some people to read it. All in all I feel like trying to stuff so much ​information into 3-4 available sentences per topic may have worsened said information' [...]


    3. I heard about the Little Black Book of Junk Science from Ethan Siegal. Ethan is a physicist and the author of the excellent science blog Starts With a Bang. Ethan's a highly credible source so I decided to have a look.I predict this little tome will trigger massive volcanic eruptions of butthurt. As a hard ass skeptic, the howls of the anal inflamed will be both entertaining and useful. As an example of just how entertaining and useful here's The Little Black Book of Junk Science's entry on vagi [...]


    4. This is a brief book aimed at clarifying or debunking a range of commonly held beliefs. It has a few obvious favourites that it repeats multiple times, some beliefs that most people have heard and agree are junk science, and some that you may well disagree with. And that's where this book is a little odd to read. If you've held a believe for long enough you would probably welcome more details before shifting your mindset. As it goes you get a brief few lines and maybe a reference to follow up on [...]


    5. Fun, short read. It will certainly take you on tangents since the blurbs are so short. Plenty of things I hadn't seen before.
