Betrayers of Truth, Fraud and Deceit in the Halls of Science, by William Broad & Nicholas Wade, Simon & Schuster, New York, 1982, This is one of those rare and outstanding books that should be in every thinking person's library. Science, the religion of the last hundred plus years is not the logical, objective process we are told that it is. Scientists are not priests in white coats, dedicated to the purity of knowledge and the sanctity of truth. They are often led by vanity, blind ambition, mendacity, and greed. The fact that most people associated with science today claim that this is impossible only makes matters worse. Its a great book with lots of facts and authentication to back it up. It doesn't dismiss Science but the religion of Science is attacked greatly. READ THIS BOOK!!!
