The Durham Herald SunreviewedUnscientific America this weekend, in advance of Sheril's talk at the Regulator Bookshop. It's a very good review from a non-science media outlet, and opens like this:

Non-scientists, and that includes most of us who work for newspapers or other media, owe it to themselves to read at least one book this year about the scientific issues facing the world. My pick is Chris Mooney and Sheril Kirshenbaum's "Unscientific America: How Scientific Illiteracy Threatens Our Future." A reader can make it through the main corpus of this taut volume, about 132 pages, in a weekend. The rest of the book contains notes, and in a few cases some lengthy elaborations on points in the main text. But do not let the brevity of this book fool you -- there is plenty to ponder and chew on in these pages.
