1 Scope. The RET Skeptic Book Club (SBC) is an activity open to all RET members and interested others who would like to discuss in depth issues related to science and its impact on society as well as a variety of related topics, in the spirit of free inquiry.
2 Titles. Preference will be given to new books (published in the last 2-3 years), although older titles will be considered if deemed interesting by enough members (see point 8). The range of topics is the one that falls under the broad headings of skepticism and free inquiry, mostly as reflected by articles published in magazines such as Skeptic, Skeptical Inquirer, Free Inquiry, Scientific American, or New Scientist.
3 Level of difficulty. The SBC is aimed at people with a general college education or equivalent. The books should not be either too general or too scientifically sophisticated. Titles regularly reviewed in the magazines listed at point (2) are most appropriate.
