A Laymans View
Laypeople will probably enjoy this book more than those within the scientific community because the author isn¿t a scientist. Although there is little difference between the processes used by scientists and laypeople, the scientific community has historically opposed ideas originating from outside their community. Debating the author¿s discovery process or the validity of his findings is counterproductive and doesn¿t resolve anything. The alternative is to go beyond your comfort zone by examining things freshly and from different perspectives without reaching any conclusion. You can tell when you are doing that because what you are observing disturbs or upsets you, and you are unable to reach a conclusion. That¿s extremely important because conclusions terminate your investigation. The author did an excellent job of providing numerous possibilities that caused me to move beyond my comfort zone. I found the book to be freshly imaginative, entertaining and challenging. Aren¿t these the ingredients that motivate us to participate in an investigation? I often wonder why the scientific community is reluctant to point out the scientific achievements made by laypeople.
