What to expect

People say that they trust scientists, yet evidence often takes a back seat to emotions. In fact, for issues that cause the loudest public furor—like vaccine safety—there is almost no debate in the scientific community. This audiobook examines the science behind today’s most contentious debates—including gun control, GMOs, and evolution, as well as strategies for understanding and coping with denialism.
