      This book explains everything you've wanted to know about astronomy, in plain and easy language anybody can understand.

      "Do you see the pattern? First the Earth was the center of everything-hurrah! Then, well, ahem. Maybe the Sun still is-yay! But then, yikes, actually we're way out in the suburbs of the [Milky Way] Galaxy. Well, this was getting downright insulting."-------A casual spin of the Google directory returns over 600,000 results for "moon landing hoax". Naturally, some portion of these hits are by the debunkers, those war-torn heroes who continue to throw logic and sense at the convinced conspiracy cul [...]

      This is a book of skeptical refutation of various bits of dementia that one comes across masquerading as science (and worse, coming out of the mouths of politicians).It works best when discussing stuff that "everyone knows" that ain't so - like the fact that meteorites do not start fires if they make it to the ground intact, or why we did so go to the moon and all your arguments that we didn't are dumb because [science].It sometimes fails on the skeptic's Achilles' Heel: an annoying tone of stri [...]

      This book is popular science at its finest. Astronomer Phil Plait clears up a number of astronomical misconceptions, tales aim at a number of psuedosciences that touch on astronomy, and addresses fallacies that have become ingrained in popular culture.

For me the chapter on the tides was especially informative [...]

      If you have earnest but misguided friends who are convinced that the moon landings were staged -- or you share that unfortunate delusion yourself -- please buy this book. It's time to put that tired old canard to bed once and for all, and this book does an elegant job of setting the record straight. The author debunks many other silly astronomical myths as well. A quick and very enlightening read.
