[Gardner] zaps his targets with laserlike precision and wit. Entertainment Weekly

Martin Gardner is perhaps the wittiest, most devastating unmasker of scientific fraud and intellectual chicanery of our time. Here he muses on topics as diverse as numerology, New Age anthropology, and the late Senator Claiborne Pell's obsession with UFOs, as he mines Americans' seemingly inexhaustible appetite for bad science. Gardner's funny, brilliantly unsettling exposs of reflexology and urine therapy should be required reading for anyone interested in alternative medicine. In a world increasingly tilted toward superstition, Did Adam and Eve Have Navels? will give those of us who prize logic and common sense immense solace and inspiration. Gardner is a national treasure...I wish [this] could be made compulsory reading in every high schooland in Congress. Arthur C. Clarke Nobody alive has done more than Gardner to spread the understanding and appreciation of mathematics, and to dispel superstition. The New Criterion, John Derbyshire
