How scientific thinking can enhance your life

Accessible and engaging, and based on fundamental psychological principles, this brief book helps students foster solid habits of scientific thought, learning to apply an empirical attitude and data-driven decision making in their lives. With this increased level of scientific literacy, students will be better able to make sense of complex scientific information they encounter. They will also be able to see through pseudoscientific claims that are not only invalid but potentially harmful.
“Through an accessible style and the use of current and classic studies, the authors have succeeded in developing a compelling explanation of the universal application of scientific literacy. Exposing students to the core principles of research in such an intellectually engaging manner will help enhance their skills in the classroom, the laboratory and beyond”
