Hi, got a request from a friend:

They have a new textbook about to be published by a big company, a
great one from all the buzz I'm hearing about it - imagine an updated,
'Why People Believe In Weird Things'-kind of text.

The publisher has sent them "an author's questionnaire, and part of it
is, do I know of teachers who might use the textbook."

Now, I have a list from Skeptic.com from a few years back, which lists
syllabi from many professors. However, quite a few of them date from
the early 2000s.

Are there any professors here, who are teaching college (or possibly
after high school resource book) who might use such a book or consider
incorporating it?

Ah, sorry - CSU Northridge, yes? You're on the top of my list, now. :)
