Martin Gardner, debunker of scientific fraud and chicanery, explores in this title startling scientific concepts, such as the possibility of multiple universes and the theory that time can go backwards. Armed with his expert, sceptical eye, he examines the bizarre tangents produced by Freudians and deconstructionists in their critiques of Little Red Riding Hood and reveals the fallacies of pseudoscientific cures, from Doctor Bruno Bettelheim's erroneous theory of autism to the cruel farces of Facilitated Communication and Primal Scream Therapy.
