Top critical review
I usually enjoy life in science books, however...
Reviewed in the United States on April 11, 2014
This is not a particularly well written book. The author wanders from personal tale to personal tale in a way that makes it easy for me to put it down. The point of the book in general is to be cautious about accepting "scientific truth" since beliefs, politics, money, influence all affect (or afflict?) the science industry. His take is physics and biology, an arena I hadn't considered before, which is mildly interesting. I think that much of modern physics basic models are suspiciously complex, and that Einstein's critique that quantum mechanics foundations are not "elegant", and therefore suspect. Interesting enough to finish, but not a must read by any means.
