Haven't read it, won't read it. I was there when these jokers tried to mine LJ for 'facts' for this book through a thoroughly offensive, ethically corrupt survey (the questions of which changed constantly, rendering the data dubious to say the least) and exposed themselves as utterly clueless, patronizing, ignorant...I could go on.

A collection of links detailing what was known as 'Surveyfail' is here.

The links to the posts on the authors' LJs don't work; they deleted their journals and the comments they'd made elsewhere. Of course, by then people had taken plenty of screencaps...

You're welcome! I read some extracts from it and a short essay by one of their colleagues that was very uncomplimentary about their research and methods so I doubt they've changed from when we met them on LJ.

Thoroughly arrogant and biased.
