Consider this audiobook a "state of the state" of the scientific method. Each voice heard in Oreskes's audiobook projects a neutral yet authoritative understanding of the value of science. Taken together, this work creates the feel of a symposium, with the speakers confidently providing insights into their areas of expertise. Challenges to scientific research and understanding are discussed, including how research results may be misinterpreted by the public. Remember those reports about how flossing your teeth isn't necessary? This appeared to be the result of misunderstanding an evaluation of methodology and results. This audiobook should be required listening for anyone concerned about the status of the scientific method and how we understand our world free of ideology or political influence.
