Speaker Series: Chris DiCarlo in San Francisco, August 13th

August's A REASON FOR REASON Skeptical Speaker Series in association with CFI brings Canadian author Christopher DiCarlo giving an exclusive preview of his forthcoming book on vital tools for the modern skeptic.

Please join us and tell fellow skeptics!

A really good pain in the ass is empowered with the ability to spot faulty reasoning and, by asking the right sorts of questions, hold people accountable not only for what they believe but how they behave. Dr. Christoper DiCarlo presents a witty and incisive guide to critical thinking that provides you with the tools to question beliefs and assumptions held by those who claim to know what they're talking about – from politicians and lawyers to bankers, doctors, the divinely inspired, and even your boss. But be aware that many people do not like having their views and beliefs questioned and challenged. Dr. DiCarlo's talk will empower you with the necessary tools that will allow you to think more clearly and confidently about important issues that affect all our lives.

BONUS: Advance copies will be available for signing & sale at the event.
