really liked it

Excellent book about how certain corporations manipulated public opinion through different means and discredited the work of legitimate scientists because it went against the economic interests of the conglomerates.

The writing is clear and concise, the arguments crisp and the tone is inquisitive and analytical.
The authors take in the whole problem, analyze it and then highlight the involvement of each party, drawing a conclusion based on all the available evidence.

If you're interested about how science in general is done or in how it sometimes collides with private interests, this book is for you.
