Description

One of the great paradoxes of modern times is that the more scientists understand the natural world, the more we discover that our everyday beliefs about it are wrong. Neil F. Comins has identified and classified, by origin and topic, over 1,700 commonly held misconceptions about the universe. He presents the reader with the tools needed to probe erroneous notions so that we can begin to question for ourselves... and to think more like scientists.
