The love of scandal
Even educated Americans seem to be uncritical in their acceptance of scandalous accusations. A careful reading of this book will show that its allegations are made through cleverly worded inuendo and not supported by data. While it is very important that all of us who work with people pay scrupulous attention to ethical issues, it is unconscionable to create havoc with half truths and statements quoted out of context as Tierney has done. Careful investigation of Tierney's allegations shows serious credibility issues, just as it did with Derek Freedman's criticisms of Margaret Mead's work. All scientific research should be open to scrutiny, but yellow journalism is not the way to do it.

I cannot write a review of the book just because eventhough I paid for it, the book never arrived. I sent a mail to B&N trying to find out what happened and the answer was that I should ask the local post office. Whithout any data regarding the shipment I could not ask a thing about it. Subsequent mails were not answered. So I lost my money and don't have the book. To ask me for a review sounds to me like a (bad taste) joke. Maybe you would like me to review B&N service.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
