Cover Price: $16.95

The truth is out there. Nothing embodies that saying like the data presented in  How To Fake A Moon Landing: Exposing the Myths of Science Denial. No matter how you slice it, science is real and it has led mankind on some wondrous adventures and completely changed our lives. From how we view the cosmos to explaining things a bit closer to home here on Earth, we see science everywhere. Now before you go getting your panties in a bunch, this book doesn’t go out of it’s way to debunk anything you learned in Sunday School. Instead, it examines how, through scientific methods, deductions (and yes, proof) can be found in a plethora of areas.

From ridiculous conspiracy theories such as Global Warming lies and the Moon Landing hoax to more mundane, medicinally focused issues such as Homeopathic remedies and Chiropractic cures, Darryl Cunningham delves deeply into the facts. Knowing that both sides in an argument are apt to use disinformation to further their agendas, he presents everything in a humorous and enlightening manner.

Cover Price: $19.95

Before you spend hard-earned cash on seed banks and toilet water recycling kits, it would be wise to invest a little time into learning about economic theory and history. But where to start? And more importantly, how to stay awake while researching?

Michael Goodwin’s graphic novel, Economix, seeks to fill in the wide gap between fear-profiteering, 24-hour cable news stations, and dreary, soul-consuming Economics 101 courses. Goodwin unapologetically takes a moderate-to-liberal viewpoint on economic theory. Much of his criticisms are reserved for the undue and unnecessary suffering of the poor and middle class caused by unchecked greed and corruption in the business and financial sector. Drudge Report junkies are likely to reject this book outright and dropkick it into the nearest dumpster. That’s a shame because economics is the most discussed news topic over the past few years; an enjoyable layman’s economic guidebook is an essential addition to any voter’s bookshelf.
