Is It Just Me Or Is Everything Shit? by Steve Lowe,Alan McArthur Summary

If you hate: loft living; bar-clubs; Tony Blair; chick lit; global warming sceptics; Keane; loyalty cards; IKEA; Kabbalah; bling and Richard Curtis... ... then you need IS IT JUST ME OR IS EVERYTHING SHIT? - an encylopedic attack on modern culture and the standard reference work for everyone who believes everything is shit. Which it is. This book is for the large percentage of the population interested in saying NO to the phoney ideas, cretinous people, useless products and doublespeak that increasingly dominate our lives. This book is designed for everyone who thinks they may have mislaid their soul in a Coffee Republic. Never before has there been a book so completely full of shit. This very funny, well-informed, belligerent rant of a book adds up to an excoriating broadside against consumer capitalism that the authors hope will sell loads of copies.

EUrrgh! by Mark Leigh Summary

What's wrong with Europe? Ignoring the fact that the EU is a grotesque, officious money sucking totalitarian machine that devours national sovereignty and pukes out unwanted, unwelcome and intrusive legislation, there's a whole variety of other reasons including: Shops that open at 10am and close at 4pm - with a two-hour lunch break in between. Oompah bands. Restaurant staff with the manners of a gibbon and the sense of urgency of a sloth. Parisians. Police forces who are the bastard offspring of the Gestapo and the Stasi. The whole concept of 'mañana. 'National costumes that are as preposterous as they are pointless. Polish spelling. Drivers who view speed limits as targets rather than warnings. Yodelling. Bouzouki music. Street signs that are a homage to small typography rather than an actual guide to your location. Donkey abuse. Women who act under the misguided idea that armpit hair is remotely sexy. The 24hr clock. Using a comma as a decimal point. Father Abraham and the Smurfs. Eurodisco. Eurozone. Eurotrash. Eurovision. Anything else preceded by the word 'Euro' (apart from Euro sceptic). The Cheeky Girls. This is less of a guidebook and more of a warning...

A Devil's Chaplain by Richard Dawkins Summary

Richard Dawkins is one of the finest minds in science, and in this superb collection of essays and letters, he demonstrates the depth of his knowledge and the rich variety of his interests. Whether he is examining postmodernism or the Human Genome Project, penning a letter to his daughter, or writing a moving eulogy to Douglas Adams and e-mailing Stephen Jay Gould, Dawkins writes with an intellectual vigour and grace that is second to none. This is a very human collection that shows not only the acuity of Dawkins' scientific mind, but also his sense of humour and the warmth of his relationships with friends and family.

Randi's Prize by Robert McLuhan Summary

James ‘The Amazing’ Randi is a stage magician who says he has a million dollars for anyone who can convince him they have psychic powers. No one has even come close to winning, proof, say sceptical scientists, that there is no such thing as ‘the paranormal’. But are they right? In this illuminating and often provocative analysis, Robert McLuhan examines the influence of Randi and other debunking sceptics in shaping scientific opinion about such things as telepathy, psychics, ghosts and near-death experiences. He points out that scientific researchers who investigate these things at first hand overwhelmingly consider them to be genuinely anomalous. But this has shocking implications, for science, for society and for even perhaps for ourselves as individuals. Hence the sceptics’ insistence that they should rather be attributed to fraud, imagination and wishful thinking. However, this extraordinary and little understood aspect of consciousness has much to tell us about the human situation, McLuhan suggests. And at a time when militants are polarising the debate about religion, its mystical, spiritual element offers an optimistic and enlightened way forward. Randi’s Prize is aimed at anyone interested in spirituality or those curious to know the truth about paranormal claims. It’s an intelligent and readable analysis of scientific research into the paranormal which, uniquely, also closely examines the arguments of well-known sceptics.
