This is a book about science and pseudoscience. Science adheres to rigorous principles and methodology. Pseudoscience takes liberties with these principles and violates the methodological sequence. Its influence is pervasive, and its tentacles slither into the medical world. Authors Charles Wynn and Arthur Wiggins draw our attention to pseudoscience and its wily charms. They elaborate their theme by discussing astrology, psychokinesis, extrasensory perception, out-of-body experiences, and creationism as representative examples of pseudoscience.
