9780956792686: Science Tales: Lies, Hoaxes and Scams

A documentary comic book debunking myths and exposing the lies of scientific naysayers and conspiracy theorists, and the role of the media. By the author of the best-selling Psychiatric Tales, Darryl Cunningham turns his questioning mind and sharp intelligence to de-coding the myths and lies that have shaped some of the most fiercely-debated issues of the past fifty years. A graphic milestone of investigative reporting, Science Tales takes on controversies surrounding climate change, electro-convulsive therapy, the moon landing, the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine, homeopathy, chiropratic, evolution and science denialism. Thoroughly researched and sourced, Cunningham's clear narrative, graphic lines and photographic illustration explain complicated and controversial issues with deceptive ease.

He lives in Yorkshire.

Review:

"Science Tales...deals with some of the most urgent debates in science using pictures, speech bubbles and comic-strip layouts... Darryl Cunningham takes a view on such knotty issues as homeopathy and the MMR vaccine, sorting facts from fiction and presenting complex information in a highly accessible way." The Observer "He consistently champions the scientific method over all forms of quackery, and his stark lines and simple layouts give his comic the feel of a scientific analysis. The artwork is uncluttered, leaving little to distract the reader from the exposition, delivered in stripped-back, staccato prose." New Scientist "He has managed to distil the arguments into a wonderfully clear and concise form - a great primer for those seeking arguments to undermine their Daily Express-reading uncle." Herald Scotland "It's clear and straightforward at all times, making complex issues simple, but never simplistic." Headline Environment "Science Tales manages to be somehow simultaneously both succinct and substantive, and a fierce and intelligent promoter of the scientific process over blind superstition and baseless supposition." Broken Frontier
