Format: Hardcover
This is a good book and I struggled to decide how to rate it, but in the end the author approaches points which it is difficult to feel are unbiased. Yes I understand he is trying to prove a point, but science is about attempting to test a hypothesis in a manner which is as least bias as possible, yet you constantly feel the author is twisting facts to meet an end.

Despite this it contains a large amount of information which I had not encountered before and is an interesting read so the best way for you to decide if you agree with my review is: read it yourself, I still think it's worth it.

Format: Hardcover
This is such a refreshing book to read. It feels like it's moving on the conversation, which is always going to upset some. Sorry but I don't think this is biased much, on the contrary it's well researched and makes an effort to address the opposite opinion without cherry-picking.
