Many APBio teachers assign this as summer reading so I had been looking forward to reading it I HATED this book I was reading it on vacation and had to set it aside because it made me so angry This is my attempt to explain why without sounding like a ranting lunatic1 The author was a terrible writer Even with a co author this book was fragmented disorganized and packed with clunky metaphors2 Unable to engage the reader using his literary skills he resorted to sensationalism The chapters were packed with exciting fringe theories and the contradicting evidence was presented in passing if at all Most readers would probably leave the book with some crippling misconceptions about evolution and natural selection 3 It was self promoting The author sorry the medical maverick had one or two interesting findings that had been published in mid tier scientific journals He then added on additional theories and research without being clear in the text he did have endnotes that the findings were not his It seemed like the point of the book was to establish himself as a talking head rather than to inform the reader At the time of writing he was represented by William Morris He then went on to shill biotech companiesI think that many readers still place excessive trust in authors with Dr in front of their name and I really HATE it when authors abuse this trust
