Public and school libraries around the nation are experiencing a rash of efforts to ban books. Behind these efforts are parents and politicians who believe that hundreds of books and topics are not fit for young readers.

Science is supposed to be impartial, ethical, and concerned only with the truth, but in many cases science is none of those things.

The book looks at examples of biased science and the results on society.
