Highlights and Lowlights of 20 years of Skeptical Investigations

What did the water diviners of Victoria say after attempting to win the Australian Skeptics $100,000 prize? How did an afternoon in Adelaide lead to the downfall of a multi-million dollar company in California? Why did Saunders sleep under a table in Las Vegas? How did a TV news show stitch up the Skeptics? And much more!
