The book says
"Neurologist Walter Freeman won the 1949 Nobel Prize for Medicine...". (page 94)

But according to the Nobel Prize website:
"1949 The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine
...Antonio Caetano de Abreu Freire Egas Moniz".

And according to Wikipedia:
"Walter Freeman nominated his mentor António Egas Moniz for a Nobel prize and in 1949 Moniz won the Nobel prize in physiology and medicine."

It's sad to see a glaring error like this in the most important chapter of the book.
(What causes more misery in the world than the authority figures that benefit from misplaced trust?)
