In Science Friction, best-selling author and Skeptic magazine publisher Michael Shermer pretends to be a psychic for a day… and fools everyone.

As a psychologist and bicycle racer Shermer reveals the science behind sports psychology; as a historian and evolutionary theorist Shermer considers what was truly responsible for the mutiny on the Bounty; and as a son, Shermer explores the possibilities of alternative and experimental medicine for his cancer-ravaged mother.

And as a skeptic, he realizes that it is time to turn the skeptical lens onto science itself. In each chapter, Shermer explores the very personal barriers and biases that plague and propel science, especially when scientists push against the unknown.
