In each of the essays in Science Friction, Shermer explores the very personal barriers and biases that plague and propel science, especially when scientists push against the unknown. What do we know, and what do we not know? How does science respond to controversy, attack, and uncertainty? When does theory become accepted fact?
"If your perceptions have ever rubbed you the wrong way, you'll find Science Friction fascinating." (Bill Nye, The Science Guy)
