#46 Yes, We have No Neutrons por A.K. Dewdney

por davidgp el 27/11/2007

Otro libro más en la misma línea que Voodoo Science pero que se me hizo bastante menos ameno que el anterior. Básicamente la diferencia está en la forma de contar las cosas. Pero bueno, si queréis seguir leyendo sobre como no se hace investigación científica, disfrutareis en gran medida este libro.

De la contraportada

“Dewdney manages to make this catalog of error entertaining as well as instructive; good medicine for both skeptics and true believers.”

Kirkus Reviews

Yes, We have No Neutrons

In the acclaimed 200% of Nothing, A. K. Dewdney humorously uncovered the alarming shenanigans of those who use “bad math” to deceive us. Now Dewdney focuses his sharp-witted perspective on the most hallowed of human endeavors: scientific inquiry. Yes, We Have No Neutrons is an absorbing and deliciously irreverent exposé of science gone wrong, featuring eight notorious cases that range from the wacky and ridicolous to the downright disturbing.

“Written with wit and a touch of pathos-and sure to please science lovers.”

-Publishers Weekly

“A useful and easily read introduction to bad science.”

Scientific American

A.K. Dewdney is the author of 200% of Nothing, also published by Wiley, and the former “Mathematical Recreations” columnist for Scientific American
