The 2014 Balles Prize in Critical Thinking, an award for excellence in the promotion of science and reason, was given this year to the creators, producers, and writers of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, and to Dr. Joe Schwarcz for his book Is That a Fact? The Balles Prize is given annually by the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI), publisher of the magazine Skeptical Inquirer.
Joe Schwarcz’s new book, “Monkeys, Myths and Molecules” is to be launched at the McGill University bookstore on May 12 at 5:30. Everyone is invited to hear some fun stories and even experience a little magic!
In the Information Age, how can you discern legitimate science from cherry-picked data, opinion posing as fact, association confused with cause and effect, bogus advice from self-appointed experts, misused statistics, and even fraud?
Join us in Ottawa as for a night of science and entertainment, and a very special book launch of Dr. Joe Schwarcz' 15th book, "Monkeys, Myths, and Molecules!"
