Guy P. Harrison is an award-winning writer and author. In his own words: "I write about many things but my primary focus is on science and skepticism. I believe that our world could be a little better--and a lot less crazy--if more people simply understood how science works and appreciated the protective value of skeptical thinking in everyday life. I've held numerous positions in the news industry, including editorial writer, world news editor, sports editor, photographer, page designer, and columnist. I'm a veteran travel writer, having visited and written about more than 25 countries on five continents. I have also had some very rewarding jobs teaching history and science to bright kids. My degree is in history and anthropology (University of South Florida)."
