A graphic milestone of investigative reporting, Cunningham’s essays explode the lies, hoaxes and scams of popular science, debunking media myths and decoding some of today’s most fiercely-debated issues: climate change, electroconvulsive therapy, the moon landing, the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine, homeopathy, chiropractic, evolution, science denialism and, new for this edition, fracking.
Thoroughly researched and sourced, Cunningham’s clear narrative, graphic lines and photographic illustration explain complicated and controversial issues with deceptive ease.
"It’s good to see the arguments presented so well, clearly and concisely... what Cunningham does here is rather brilliantly presented, and customarily classy. As an artist his work is equally at home in the stark black and white of Psychiatric Tales or the lush and varied colours in Science Tales... Science Tales is impressive, Cunningham delivering his message with style, great art, even moments of outright comedy. All in all, we have something else to deliver the message of science and reason, and that’s a good, good thing." - Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet
