IANS Ch. 10 and Conclusion

"Keep always the watchword caveat lector - once again, 'let the reader beward'" (195).

While I am glad that the authors of this book chose not to end with a negative statement about scientists and journalists, I have a hard time believing that they needed an entire book to caution readers. A few examples would have been sufficient. Instead, we have a redundant and long-winded text that overemphasizes its point. Perhaps for future classes only sections of this book should be read - not all of it is necessary.
