Publishers Marketing : "This collection of common fallacies, first published in England, includes false beliefs concerning historical facts, physical and social science, and particular author's erroneous theories. A few categories such as hallucinations, some hoaxes, the occult, religious systems, and miracles, are said to be excluded in the preface, though some are present. The entries vary both in length and quality. The Bermuda Triangle and Erich von Daniken receive substantial treatment, but other entries like "The efficacy of sacred relics," and an arbitrary paragraph on a university education have much less merit. Other entries offer amusing browsing, although the style is at times abrupt. Each volume contains a separate alphabetical sequence, and unfortunately, also a separate index. There is room for improvement in future editions.-- Stephen H. Cape, Indiana Univ. Lib., Bloomington" 2 Volumes. DJ's are covered in clear plastic sleeves. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 615 pages.
