RWOS in NYT Sunday Book Review Again

I’m happy to announce that the paperback edition of The Republican War on Science is a “Paperback Row” pick for this Sunday’s Times book review. The Times also links to John Horgan’s mostly favorable review, which was part of a cover package last December. Back then, I didn’t know that Horgan, like me, was an English major. Now he directs the Center for Science Writings at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey. In other words, Horgan is yet another rebuttal to the Discovery Institute’s credentialism about science reporting.

    I read The End of Science.

    No, he isn’t.

    Congrats, Chris. I actually just started reading the hardcover edition yesterday. So far, I’m very impressed.

    Just as Chris, Oulette and Zimmer are a rebuttal to the claim that possessing a scientific credential is a necessary condition for being good science writer, several members of the Discovery Institute are a rebuttal to the claim that having a science credential is a sufficient condition.
