"I love this book! I wish I would have written this book! This is skepticism for the real world, an introduction on how to think!! --Michael Shermer, Ph.D., author of Why People Believe Weird Things and The Borderlands of Science

"A sensible, practical, easy-to-read book that could literally save your career, your sanity, or even your life - shows us how to think for ourselves and to protect our rights in difficult and even life-threatening situations when dealing with authorities and experts!" -- Peter R. Breggin, MD, author of Talking Back to Prozac and Medication Madness

"Sharon Presley is a consistent voice of insight and calm reasoning in a world of turmoil and frequent spin. She asks of us what we should ask of ourselves -- critical thinking and respect for our own rights and the rights of others as human beings... Presley helps readers to make sense in the midst of the nonsensical and to engage in a process of searching for truth."
-- Norman Solomon, author of War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death

What's the most effective way to ask for a raise? How can I get my doctor to take my complaints seriously? How can I learn to separate the valuable wheat from the bogus chaff in media reports?

These are just some of the questions I answer in my new book Standing Up to Experts and Authorities. It offers a practical toolkit, with specific techniques to help people stand up to and deal effectively with experts in a wide range of contexts, including the workplace, bureaucracies, and schools. It shows you how to deal with lawyers, contractors, police, customer reps, and much more.
