The authors are Alex Berezow and Hank Campbell, and the subtitle is Feel-Good Fallacies and the Rise of the Anti-Scientific Left. I agree with many of the particular claims in this book, and also I find those undervalued in broader intellectual discourse. Nonetheless I am struck by a mismatch between the book’s message and some of its tone, as well as the sense that one side should be singled out for condemnation (the same point can be made about left-wing books on related topics).
This excerpt made me giggle:
…despite what some progressives will contend, the purpose of this book is not to demonize all progressives. We just want to demonize the loony ones.
