Benjamin T. Awesome Thanks for your edifying comments. I cancelled my order for the book, having fallen into the trap of trusting Siegel’s other writing (on say Gravitational Waves etc.) and not having checked on the ACSH myself.
Their website reads like a junk news site. For example
State of California Repudiates Erin Brockovich
Now, the Sacramento Bee reports that California water regulators have decided against implementing a rule that would have capped hexavalent chromium in drinking water at 10 parts per billion (ppb). A judge said the rule was invalid because economic feasibility was not considered.
From the actual reasons (economics) to the headline’s claim is a large stretch.
I wish I could take back my applause for Siegel’s original article.
