'nother book rec: Bad Science by Ben Goldacre. It's about the ways which people dress up thing that aren't science as science, and even though I already knew about quite a lot of the examples brought up in the book, it makes a lot of interesting points about them that I hadn't thought about. The author's writing style is also very engaging.
