"Davis makes a strong case in her book that we've underplayed the possible threat from cell phones for too long...Time and again, she shows the way that industry has been able to twist science just enough to stave off the possibility of any regulation."
"Disconnect will surprise many and anger some. It tells all too human stories behind the science and engineering of cell phones and raises important unresolved questions about this universal technology."
-Frank A. Barnes, Professor, University of Colorado at Boulder; Member of the National Academy of Engineering
"A critically important book that is a must-read for parents and policy makers. A surprising, well-documented, and compelling call for action."
-Phil Lee, M.D., former United States assistant secretary for health; Chancellor Emeritus, University of California, San Francisco
"An amazing and important book that must be read to be believed. Are these devices safe for humans? The 'don't ask, don't tell' approach of the industry is irresponsible at best, criminal at worst. Read and learn why and how to protect yourself and your loved ones."
-Mark Hyman, M.D., author of The UltraMind Solution; Chairman, The Institute for Functional Medicine
"A brilliant and courageous tour de force by one of our nation's leading environmental health experts. Davis provides a detailed exposé that forces us all to take a good, hard look at what we know and what we don't know about cell phones."
-Ronald B. Herberman, M.D., Founding Director Emeritus, University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute
"Devra Davis has written a book that will change the way the world thinks about cell phones and the potential public heath disaster they represent."
-Carlos Santos-Burgoa, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., Past President, International Society for Environmental Epidemiology
"This book will be a must-read for anyone who cares about our children's brains."
-David Servan-Schreiber, M.D., Ph.D., author of Anticancer
