This audiobook is a mess. I am a fan of Shermer's work, in general, though he is not always a particularly great writer, he is usually interesting. In retrospect, I guess his books work because you can read the good parts and skip his rambling transitions and rather incoherent connections between topics. Not so in the audiobook, where you have to listen to sentence after tedious sentence as he uses repeated examples to attempt to differentiate good borderland science from nonsense, without having a strong central thesis. There are better listens, read this if you are interested, but don't bother slogging through the audio.

its hard to get a honest review of a book about reason in a world where d chopra's book is listed in the (audible.com b and nobles and amazons) nonfiction section.... shermer is a clear thinker and an important writer. an ejoyabe book for every level. cleverly and repectfully helps all of us to understand the crutial differences between hard facts and soft feelings.
