The most recent collection of miscellaneous pieces by Gardner is a delightful ramble through Gardner's usual set of topics. There are Skeptical Inquirer columns about Ann Coulter on Darwin, the purported psychic prediction of the sinking of the Titanic, a review of Peter Ackroyd's biography of Isaac Newton, mathematical games from IASFM and the College Mathematics Journal, commentary on L. Frank Baum and G.K. Chesterton.
