This book is everything it says on the tin, it is a highly interesting, engaging and thorough guide to critical thinking and skepticism and Dr Novella does a wonderful job as narrator. The Skeptic's Guide is a delightful and much needed update to Carl Sagan's 'A Demon Haunted World' and I daresay is just as good or even better as either a starting point or a refresher for those trying to get a handle on the topic. I highly recommend 'The Guide' to absolutely everyone, especially those interested in thinking well. Newcomers to the topic and seasoned skeptics alike all have something to gain from this book and should find it both highly insightful and easy to listen to. Five stars all round.

Brilliant

The only problem with this book, as with the others in the series and as I have explained at great lengths to anyone who will listen (i.e. nobody) is that it is altogether too short.
Martin Freeman does a superb job as narrator and the writing is just as funny, eccentric and surprising as the previous books in the series. I very much look forward to the next one.

You can't go wrong with the words of this genius but I was very surprised to find that the narrator sounds so uncannily like Dr Feynman that I often found myself forgetting that it wasn't actually him speaking. Great listen. I recommend this to any lover of science and/or sophisticated thought.
