Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense ~ Carl Sagan
TAM, the Amaz!ng Meeting, is the biggest get-together in the Skeptical universe, and in November 2010, TAM comes to Australia. TAM features the best and most interesting, humorous and controversial Skeptics from around the world, and TAM Australia will be the largest event of its kind ever held here. And Embiggen Books will be there with bells on! We will be the official bookseller at this most fabulous of conventions. As Australia’s only specialist supplier of skeptical, science and critical thinking books it’s a marriage made in skeptical heaven. We’ll be bringing titles by the likes of James Randi, Eugenie Scott, Ben Goldacre, Martin Bridgstock, Michio Kaku, Brian Grene, Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, Jennifer Oulette, Graham Farmelo, Stuart Clarke, Martin Gardner, Jamie Whyte, Julian Baggini and so many more.
All of this means that our Skeptics and Atheist sections will be a little low in our online shopping cart till after the event. This will mean that some titles will face a delay in delivery if you order them online between now and the 1st week of December.
TAM Australia will be held from November 26-28 at the Sydney Masonic Centre in Sydney, Australia. The line-up includes James Randi, Simon Singh, the entire cast of The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe, Brian Dunning from Skeptoid, Krissy Wilson, Eugenie Scott, George Hrab from the Geologic Podcast, Dr Karl, Fred Watson, Rachael Dunlop and a host of other local and overseas skeptics and freethinkers. TAM Australia offers a variety of divertissements, from education and entertainment to the camaraderie and shared experiences you can only get at Skeptical meetings.
