Junk Science: An Overdue Indictment of Government, Industry, and Faith Groups That Twist Science for Their Own Gain - Dan Agin
A good, straight faced companion to the Showtime television show, "Penn and Teller's Bullshit," this book is a testament to the good that can be done with the power of modern science as well as a large sampling of the far too common waste and twist of science to fit the machinations of devious or naively uneducated people.
