Reviews

""Terrific, useful, well-written, and just plain entertaining. ...Think is a book that should be on every skeptic's bookshelf, and, more importantly, the bookshelf of anyone who is not yet convinced that science is the best way to know." --Skeptical Inquirer "Harrison's upbeat style nicely conveys some of the latest scientific research on how the mind functions... [His] inviting style serves the interests of skeptics and scientists who face the onslaught of nonsense, delusion, ignorance, stupidity, and bias that dominates today's muddled culture... Highly recommended." --Library Journal "Very useful.... Harrison demonstrates the need for critical analysis in a world of conflicting stories and glib "facts."' --Publishers Weekly "If you are happy being told what to think, don't buy this book. However, if you want to learn how to think and be in control of your health, your investments, and your destiny, then read this book now. In lucid and unbiased writing, Harrison explains how you can enrich your life and that of your loved ones by simply using your brain to think critically." --Dr. Donald C. Johanson, discoverer of Lucy, the most famous fossil in history "A clear and passionate book on skepticism, clear thinking, and a wide range of juicy paranormal claims. A great and fun read for everyone. Harrison succeeds at motivating, inspiring, and indeed haunting the reader. As he says, 'Think before you believe.' Required reading for anyone who doesn't want to waste time, health, money, and dignity on things that probably are not real or true." --Jonathan C. Smith, Professor of psychology, Chicago's Roosevelt University "Think will provide you with the tools to protect yourself against being ripped off . . . by common beliefs that don't stand up to scientific testing. Then, as an added bonus, it will clear the fog so you can better appreciate the awesomeness of reality. Highly recommended." --Lynne Kelly, author of The Skeptic's Guide to the Paranormal "Sometimes we want things to be true, but being able to tell the difference between fable and fact is not just a nice idea--it will save you money, tons of time, and possibly your life. Harrison's wonderfully written reality check offers the most valuable education you can get this side of grad school." --Dr. Seth Shostak, Senior astronomer, SETI Institute
