Nowhere is this book ever promoted as anything but an introduction to skepticism and it certainly is, however the style is such that it should have been targeted to young adults. While it has great information, it's rather annoying to read as an adult and especially if you already have knowledge of the topics. It is certainly worthwhile for a younger audience as it includes lots of suggested reading for when you want to delve deeper into the subjects presented.
