Praise for Think: Why you should question everything
“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, founding director of the Institute of Human Origins and discoverer of Lucy, the most famous fossil in history
“A clear and passionate book on skepticism . . . A great and fun read for everyone. Harrison succeeds at motivating, inspiring, and indeed haunting the reader. 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
“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
"It is no exaggeration to say this book, in a mere couple hundred pages, provides more skeptical utility than 12 years of primary and secondary education. Our education system spends so much time telling us what to think that it never teaches us how to think. We need more teachers like Harrison. If you want to vaccinate yourself and your children against irrational, dangerous beliefs, reading this book is an excellent start." -Young Australian Skeptics
