Reviews

"Reality Check is an entertaining, thought-provoking, and informative read."

--Reports of the National Center for Science Education

"The shabby tactics of science denialists sparked this astute exposition of what we lose when science is sidelined.... Ultimately, Prothero argues, by claiming that clear findings on climate change, biodiversity loss and overpopulation are false, deniers inch us closer to catastrophic planetary tipping points."

--Nature

"Strongly recommended for popular-science readers who want better to be able to explain and defend science and scientific methods to others."

--Library Journal

"Prothero's treatise will give the science-minded something to cheer about, a brief summary of the real data that supports so many critical aspects of modern life."

--Publishers Weekly
