Summary:
We often assume that science and myth stand in opposition, but the rhetoric of contemporary popular science and related genres tells a different story about what contemporary readers really want from science. This book shows how writers such as Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Pollan successfully fuse science and myth to offer compelling narratives about how we can improve our understanding of ourselves and our world.
