Skeptic Book Club - March

Skeptics -

In honor of Chris Mooney coming to town, we are going to read his recent work The Republican Brain (the book his talk will be based on). It will be interesting to hear from the author in person before meeting to discuss his work.

From Amazon:

"Science writer Chris Mooney explores brain scans, polls, and psychology experiments to explain why conservatives today believe more wrong things; appear more likely than Democrats to oppose new ideas and less likely to change their beliefs in the face of new facts; and sometimes respond to compelling evidence by doubling down on their current beliefs."

This is only a few weeks away, so buy your copy and get reading!

    I made audio recording of the Mar 11 talk and hope to get off the waitlist to attend tonight. It would be great if we can get a copy of his slidedeck (pdf) from the talk too.
