By: HH Bauer
&i;`Provocative....Bauer argues that science does not proceed by the scientific method. If it did, experiments would inspire hypotheses which would then be tested until they generated reliable theories. As Watson and Crick's work (on DNA) shows, an elegant idea is often a headier lure than mere facts.'&o; - Newsweek.
To put some of the adventure back in everyday science, this study is the place to start. Bauer ... upends current contentions about science literacy in a small, dense book that could be the nucleus of a restructuring of how science works in our culture, or, in the author's terms, how its reputation works. -- Publishers Weekly
