There is a something on a competing book called, "Science Left Behind: Feel-Good Fallacies and the Rise of the Anti-Scientific Left“ that is being promoted by more conservative circles. One recommendation comes from Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk radio host, author of The 10 Big Lies about America...He's not my favorite source of ideas and while Medved finds it " Entertaining, enlightening, and important" (along with the American Enterprise Instituted) I believe other review such as Publisher's weekly that summarize it as follows:
While frequently illuminating, Berezow and Campbell employ sweeping generalizations (e.g., "[I]n truth, Europe is a nice place. European countries have good food.") that often undermine convincing arguments. And their list of 12 issues that would require a blend of science and politics is underwhelming—among them: "Managing resources efficiently" and "Addressing global poverty." (Sept.)
Of course the people who really like to use the book are anti-evolutionists such as the http://www.evolutionnews.org/2012/10/science_left_b065791.html site which hawks the book in arn article:
"Science Left Behind Can Teach Us about Political Tactics of Intelligent Design Critics"
You might also add climate change critics using the book to blur issues too. Below is a longer review by Ken Silber of the book and comparing it to Mooney's book that was discussed at the December meeting.
