    1. This book has the potential to be a phenomenal read, if only because of the immense amount of facts and knowledge that the author obviously has, but seriously lacks all types of conviction. The second chapter alone reads like a discourse on what apocalypic movies to watch or not watch, but offers nothing in terms of insight or opinion. Good try, but totally off the mark.


    2. What a disappointment.I've adored Martin Gardner since I first picked up "The Annotated Alice", and he was a one-of-a-kind historian, raconteur, critic, and general pioneer of common sense and rational thinking. I was also amazed, given he was very old at the time of writing this book, to think that he had it in him.Instead, what I soon learned was that this book was clearly put together from essays, reviews, articles, and other miscellanea previously written. Which is fine, in and of itself. Ma [...]


    3. No está mal pero me gustó muchísimo más El mundo y sus demonios de Carl Sagan, que es de 10. Martin Gardner resulta bastante denso en algunas partes, aunque soportable, pero lo que menos me ha gustado es que no aporta puntos de vista que creo necesarios.


    4. Eclectic erudition. This is the first of Gardner's 70+ books that I've read and what blew my mind, initially, was a combination of the scope of his interests, the range of his research and knowledge and his overwhelming and abiding passion for the pursuit of reason and truth in a scientific world beset by stupidity, falsehood and outright chicanery. The book is a series of essays (and their addenda offering reactions to the original and further argumentation) loosely grouped into large categorie [...]


    5. Did Adam and Eve Have Navels? Una exhaustiva y sarcástica bibliografía de las más variadas y estrafalarias seudociencias y teorías conspirativas. Poca refutación científica, eso sí. Pareciera que no quisiera molestarse en hacerlo, lo que contradice el sentido del libro.



    6. Cap al final és molt repetitiu, aporta poc i presenta casos molt concrets i aïllats. Ha costat d'acabar…


    7. This collection of revised/updated essays from Skeptical Inquirer covers a wide range of wackiness, both historical and current (as of 1999). It deals with creationism, odd physics, medicine, social science, psychology, UFOs, and several other topics in a conversational style that makes even quantum physics quite easy to understand (relatively speaking, heh). I am pleased to note that I now understand quantum physics much better, know who Carlos Castaneda was and why his writings were an insult [...]


    8. I have to stop half-way of this book (hence I will not give a rating as that would not be fair for the book).I started off really enjoying reading it. But as I progressed, it got much more annoying as all I absorbed were critics after critics. Understanding that it was the purpose of the book, and as the author also stated in the introduction, the book is a collection of the columns he wrote for a newspaper, still I felt that it was too much to just read about criticism. I felt like I did not le [...]


    9. Martín Gardner es más conocido como un divulgador de las matemáticas (en las famosas columnas Matemáticas Recreativas de la revista Scientific American). Sin embargo, es también conocida sus elegantes denuncias de las pseudo ciencias. Este libro es una colección de ensayos en donde Gardner denuncia como hay mucha basura llena de lenguaje científico hasta sencillamente basura a secas. Desde la orinoterapia, el aura, los extraterrestres Ni Freud se salva (el capítulo sobre Freud y el psico [...]


    10. Readability 6. Rating 5. This is a hard one to rate. At the end, I give it a mediocre rating because some of the information felt dated and repetitive, and I also had a hard time even wading through some of the crap. This is totally unfair to Gardner. We need more like him to do just what he’s doing – stand up to the idiots, the zealots, the crazy people and shine a light of reason and scientific method. I’ll pay to have him keep it up, but I’m not sure I want to be on the front lines wi [...]


    11. I guess everything depends on your point of view. This book is a collection of discourses on things that really don't matter to anyone who has a life outside of questions that make very little difference. The author is a skeptic, and a very close-minded one at that. I'd only recommend this book to those people who love to read overly detailed essays written by an ignorant genius. Good luck wading through the muck.


    12. Certainly not one of Gardner's best. This book collects a bunch of essays about pseudoscience and such, but it's just general 'he did this, they wrote that' There's no charm or witticism. And why is he so cranky at religious people in this volume? I mean, poking fun at religious fundamentalism is pretty standard for Gardner, but here he's got an attitude about people trying to make scientific sense out of religious matters, too. I think maybe he's just getting grumpy in his old age?


    13. Decepción TotalNO tengo nada nuevo que añadir al resto de reviews. Me las prometía con un libro de explicaciones científicas a ciertos aspectos curiosos, y no es más que una recopilación de artículos que divagan sobre unos temas, aportando muchas fuentes y referencias sin incluir ningún tipo de discurso.No lo he acabado, pero el 50% es más que suficiente.


    14. Yes, they did.Martin Gardner writes for the Skeptical Inquirer and has gathered some pieces to publish as a book. He debunks some of the more prominent charlatans of our time. It is a good selection of his writing. I especially liked his discussion of Darwin and Stephen Jay Gould's religious beliefs.


    15. 500 G Interesting and amusing essays debunking things like UFOs, intelligent design, reflexology, etc. Some of this we all know but he brings alot more to the discussion plus some things I didn't realize. For instance, I never knew there was discussion about whether tribes that practiced cannibalism existed or not. This author puts out debunking books every few years






    16. The first chapter is the best. Otherwise, it is a decent laugh. The author debunks people like Freud, Edison, Newton, Darwin and hits at some other weird-science/religion related topics.
