Review quote

"To put some of the adventure back in everyday science, this study is the place to start. Bauer ... upends current contentions about science literacy in a small, dense book that could be the nucleus of a restructuring of how science works in our culture, or, in the author's terms, how its reputation works." -- Publishers Weeklyshow more
