"Comprehensive, readable, and replete with current, useful examples, this book provides a much-needed explanation of how to be a critical consumer of the scientific claims we encounter in our everyday lives." -April Cordero Maskiewicz, Department of Biology, Point Loma Nazarene University "Seethaler's book helps the reader look inside the workings of science and gain a deeper understanding of the pathway that is followed by a scientific finding-from its beginnings in a research lab to its appearance on the nightly news."-Jim Slotta, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto "How I wish science was taught this way Seethaler builds skills for critical thinking and evaluation. The book is rich with examples that not only illustrate her points beautifully, they also make it very interesting and fun to read."-Julia R. Brown, Director, Targacept, Inc. Don't Get Hoodwinked Make Sense of Health and Science News...and Make Smarter Decisions Every day, there's a new scientific or health controversy. And every day, it seems as if there's a new study that contradicts what you heard yesterday. What's "really" going on? Who's telling the truth? Who's faking it? What do scientists actually know--and what "don't" they know? This book will help you cut through the confusion and make sense of it all--even if you've never taken a science class Leading science educator and journalist Dr. Sherry Seethaler reveals how science and health research really work...how to put scientific claims in context and understand the real tradeoffs involved...tell quality research from junk science...discover when someone's deliberately trying to fool you...and find more information you can "trust " Nobody knows what new controversy will erupt tomorrow. But one thing's for certain: With this book, "you'll" know how to figure out the real deal--and make smarter decisions for yourself and your family Watch the news, and you'll be overwhelmed by snippets of badly presented science: information that's incomplete, confusing, contradictory, out-of-context, wrong, or flat-out dishonest. Defend yourself Dr. Sherry Seethaler gives you a powerful arsenal of tools for making sense of science. You'll learn how to think more sensibly about everything from mad cow disease to global warming-and how to make better science-related decisions in both your personal life "and" as a citizen. You'll begin by understanding how science really works and progresses, and why scientists sometimes disagree. Seethaler helps you assess the possible biases of those who make scientific claims in the media, and place scientific issues in appropriate context, so you can intelligently assess tradeoffs. You'll learn how to determine whether a new study is "really" meaningful; uncover the difference between cause and coincidence; figure out which statistics mean something, and which "don't."
