Kids' STEM Book Debuts With Raving Endorsements - Horoscopes: Reality or Trickery?
By: Green Grove Press
Blaker explains, "Horoscopes:
Michael Shermer, best-selling author and monthly columnist for Scientific American, says, "this delightful book by Kimberly Blaker is the perfect balance of education and entertainment on a particular topic (horoscopes and astrology) . . . How do we know what is true? Science is the best tool we have, and this wonderful book should be gifted to every parent, teacher, and student."
What makes this book particularly unique is that it provides kids the tools and information needed to decide for themselves whether astrology is real or just a hoax. Blaker points out, "my objective is not to tell kids what to think, but rather show them how to think for themselves and come to logical conclusions."
James Alcock, professor of psychology at Glendon College, York University, says about Horoscopes: Reality or Trickery?, "Pseudoscience often appeals because it is fascinating and exciting, but this book demonstrates that critical thinking about pseudoscience can be just as fascinating and exciting, while having the additional advantage of dealing with what is real."
The book has received additional endorsements by such celebrities as Harriet A. Hall, a retired family physician and Air Force surgeon and columnist (SkepDoc) for Skeptic magazine, and psychologist Susan Blackmore, one of Britain's most renowned skeptics who's done extensive research on paranormal claims.
Horoscopes: Reality or Trickery? is available in hardcover ($19.95), paperback ($13.95), and ebook ($9.95) through most online book retailers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Green Grove Press as well as many brick-and-mortar booksellers.
