Born in the 20th century, we have witnessed advances in every area of man's endeavour. Yet, despite the dramatic expansion of knowledge and enlightenment, scientific illiteracy and a proclivity to believe in the untenable abounds. The author, an experienced skeptical investigator, seeks to guide the reader through a plethora of New Age beliefs, concepts and superstitions, to separate the facts from the fads, fantasy, fiction and fraud.
