Over at Daily Kos, DarkSyde will post his review of Unscientific America: How Scientific Illiteracy Threatens Our Future at 9am ET. Chris and I will be online ready to answer questions and discuss the book in comments. Come join this morning's virtual discussion... UPDATE: The review is now live here....key quote:

Unscientific America by Chris Mooney and Sheril Kirshenbaum is a must read for anyone who cares about understanding or reversing the long national slide into pseudoscience and willful ignorance that has periodically gripped America. The book neatly follows up Mooney's best seller, The Republican War on Science, into a broader, nonpartisan narrative of an entire nation enamored by the nifty gizmos and life saving applications of science, yet saddled with a long history of anti-intellectualism that periodically spills over into open contempt. It's a dose of stiff but sorely needed medicine for baby boomers and genx'ers who grew up during a short thaw in that icy antiscience trend by way of a cold war, a hot space race, and one great communicator named Carl Sagan.
