Reviews

"[Whyte] whets a long knife of ultra-rationalism on the cold stone of logic, and death by a thousand cuts is inflicted on prejudice, statistics, morality, religion, weasel words, and seductive sirens such as politicians, New Agers, advertising executives, and, of course, journalists who expect you to be persuaded by anything other than facts." The Times 20031129 "He ruthlessly exposes logical flaws and sheer nonsense... in likably angry and witty style." The Guardian 20031101
