This book is destined to be our most controversial book yet—and not just because of its title. In Why Science is Wrong…About Almost Everything, Alex Tsakiris, who is best known for the popular Skeptiko podcast, goes head-to-head with mainstream science on the issue on consciousness. He delivers a blistering attack on the entrenched view that humans are mere biological robots. Science is wrong about almost everything, he insists, because science depends on our consciousness being an illusion. And it’s not. In the course of the book, he discusses near-death experiences, mediums, telepathy, healing, psychic detectives, evolution, and much more. “Alex writes as our conscience here,” notes Rice University professor Jeffrey Kripal, “as he calls us all to balk against the silly and self-contradictory script that is reductive materialism.”
