Summary

This revised and updated handbook features a selection of essay-style book reviews byCarol Tavris, written for theTimes Literary Supplement, The Chronicle of Higher Education, American Scientist,andThe New York Times Book Review.These reviews apply psychological research and principles of scientific thinking. They aim to show how critical thinking can help people assess arguments promoted in the popular culture, and how to separate those that are scientifically sound from those based on "psychobabble"-pop-psych notions dressed up in fancy, sciency-sounding language.
