Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A scathing indictment of the growing role of junk science in our courtrooms. Peter W. Huber shows how time and again lawyers have used—and the courts have accepted—spurious claims by so-called expert witnesses to win astronomical judgments that have bankrupted companies, driven doctors out of practice, and deprived us all of superior technologies and effective, life-saving therapies.

Book News Annotation:

A more credible subtitle would be "junk sci in the junkroom." Of course our legal system is based upon charlatans raping lepers; this deserves a book? Huber does follow the junk far enough to report on the appeal courts' reversals of the lower court decisions and awards. Read this if you suffer from low blood pressure.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 229-259) and index.
