On the Wild Side

Gardner, Martin

 A collection of reprints of Gardner's Skeptical Inquirer columns, book reviews from the New York Review of Books and other sources, and essays from Free Inquiry. All are in the debunking mode. The subjects of interest to this Journal are the debunks of Gaiaism, relativism in science, finger-lift levitation, Urantia, the Titanic, and PPO [permanent paranormal objects], John Beloff, speaking in tongues, PK testing, the Smith-Blackburn ESP hoax, and William James and Mrs. Piper. The publisher lists "an autobiographical essay" in which Gardner tells how he evolved into a debunker from a religious fundamentalist. (This "essay" is the two-page Preface, and the story of the "evolution" consumes two paragraphs.)
Publisher Information:Buffalo, NY: Prometheus Books, 1992. 257p. 8 figs; 23 illus; Index: 249-257
