I don't know why this is classified under humor, yes it's written in an engaging and on rare occasions funny way but I don't find this funny, I find the whole situation sad because it depicts the current state truthfully. I know that average person isn't interested in science and perceives it as difficult, but it's really depressing to realize how little everyone knows about it and how superficially the information that comes to them is judged. What scares me is that it's so widespread that no one is immune to it (myself unfortunately included). The only way to fight back is to educate ourselves and read and review the data. I enjoyed reading this book and I think it's a must read, it's written in a way that everyone can understand.
