    One thought on “The Best of the Journal of Irreproducible Results”

    1. An uproarious collection of articles from one of the best-kept secrets in modern satire. My favorite is the "National Geographic will lead to global collapse" thesis. Everybody should read at least a handful of these essays.

    2. A tongue-in-cheek collection of articles that mimics the style of the scientific paper so closely that the reader will be convinced of the outrageously bogus assertions set forth by their authors, such as the behavioral genetics of the sidehill gouger or the relation of cows to magnetic fields. It is broken up into several parts and covers most fields of science, from medicine to psychology. Published in the 80s, this is a true gem any scientist will find hilarity in.

    3. This was a ton of fun. I read this soon after it came out, and had a great time. It's especially funny for someone like me who spent many hours reading (and sometimes writing) research reports. Years later, I subscribed to the e-mail newsletter offered by the same group, and still enjoy it today. I'm fairly sure the description for this book on has an error. It states the book was published in 1989, but my copy has a publication date of 1983 and I know I read it in 1984.
