The perfect remedy for our culture of fake news, bad science, and propaganda.

We have more scientific information at our fingertips today than ever before. And more disinformation too. Online, on television, and in print, science is often communicated through shorthand analogies and phrases that obscure or omit important facts. Superfoods, right- and left-brained people, and global warming may be snappy and ear-catching but are they backed by scientific facts? Lifelong educator R. Philip Bouchard is a stickler for this kind of thing, and he is well-prepared to set the record straight.

The Stickler's Guide to Science in the Age of Misinformation unpacks the many misuses of terms we see used every day, revealing how these popular scientific concepts fall short of real science. Find out why trees do not store carbon dioxide; a day is not actually 24 hours; DNA cannot provide a blueprint for a human being; and an absence of gravity is not the reason that astronauts float in space.
