Reviews

"Excellent ... Gardner analyses everything from the media's predilection for irrational scare stories to the cynical use of fear by politicians pushing a particular agenda ... A cheery corrective to modern paranoia" * Economist *
"Terrific ... exceptionally good - has the clarity of Malcolm Gladwell" * Evening Standard *
"Enlivening ... a fascinating insight into the peculiar and devastating nature of human fear" * Sunday Telegraph *
"Stimulating ... where writers such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Francis Wheen have been content largely to enumerate the errors of less rational men and women, Dan Gardner has collated part of what we need to diagnose the problem" * Independent on Sunday *
"Beautifully observed" * Observer *
