Book Description

According to The Guardian, Midgley is 'the foremost scourge of scientific pretentions in this country; someone whose wit is admired even by those who fee she sometimes oversteps the mark'.  This book examines how science comes to be used as a substitute for religion and points out how badly that role distorts it.  Her argument is flawlessly insightful: a punch, compelling, lively indictment of these misuses of science.  Both the book and its author are true classics of our time.
