Sourcing for Dummies

I’m a big fan of the “Blank” for Dummies books. They are entertaining and written by prominent authors on a wide variety of subjects. Well today in church I was citing a recent fact I learned from one of the books, and my source sounded something like this: “So according to Dummies, this statistic is true.”

The room exploded in laughter in response to my “source.” Regardless of the book’s credibility, the name will always leave the reference sounding a little under qualified. The point of this post? Use discretion when citing the excellent Dummy books.
