Praise For The End of Science

"John Horgan buttonholes the most interesting scientists on the planet--he listens, he argues, he thinks.  He has an exceedingly accurate instinct for the side of science that isn't published in journals or taught in schools, and it's a privilege to be able to follow along as he peers behind the curtain."
--James Gleick, author of Chaos

"[In this] intellectually bracing, sweepingly reported, often brilliant and sometimes bullying book, John Horgan makes the powerful case that the best and most exciting scientific discoveries are behind us."
--New York Times Book Review, front page review

"...an unauthorized biography of science."
--The Associated Press

"Hugely entertaining, certain to create controversy."
--E.O. Wilson
