Bullshit: A Lexicon by Mark Peters $16.00


Scream: Chilling Adventures in the Science of Fear (PublicAffairs) $26.99 – Kerr is a sociologist prof but also works for ScareHouse, a haunted house in Pittsburgh. She also co-runs academic studies of fear. She went around the world researching fear in different contexts: roller coasters, places rumored to be haunted (like abandoned prisons), countries known for their high crime, a Japanese forest with a reputation for high suicide rates, etc. It’s a fascinating read but also, it’s a bit like the charmingly chatty and fun science writing of Mary Roach (who wrote books like Spook, Gulp, and so on). But it also has that personal journey feel to it to. So it’s more than a sociological or scientific study. It’s sort of memoir-y and sometimes kind of natural history-ish too. -LM
