Unscientific America Reviewed

All of us here at New Voices are strong proponents for science communication and advocacy. Which is why we were delighted to get a chance to read an early copy of Unscientific America: How Scientific Illiteracy Threatens Our Future by Chris Mooney and Sheril Kirshenbaum.

Today, Heather and Ilse are going to share their reviews with you.

It's important to note that both reviews are based on a galley copy (which means it wasn't finished being edited for print yet). So, any statements made about form and content may have been altered before printing. We got our copies this morning as we were finishing typing up these reviews, giving us a chance to mark the quotes accurately. However, the rest of our general statements are based on the early version of the book.

We think this book - which discusses the ways science and society interact with each other (or don't, for the most part) - is worth your time. And, we hope our reviews convince you of that.

So without further ado ...
