Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stanton Friedman and Kathleen Marden offer example after example of what happens when good people fail to step back and look at not only the details, but the big picture. Sometimes it's those we love most who we chastise hardest, and in the case of this book, the authors' love for scientists and the scientific community is evident in this epic wake-up call." --George Noory, host, Coast to Coast AM<br /><br />"When considering the historical record of scientific experts, from their views on manned flight and atom bombs to germs and Global Warming, the one constant seems to be that mostly they were wrong. Perhaps it is time for the public to consider alternative sources of information, such as this book." --Jim Marrs, author of the New York Times best-sellers Crossfire and Rule by Secrecy

Essentially, this book appears to be a plea for more serious open-minded research in paranormal phenomena.

Format: Paperback
Over the centuries there have been many errors in judgement made by scientists and engineers - some involving apparent discoveries that were simply wrong, some involving important discoveries that were simply ignored. Eventually, hard, reproducible experimental evidence became so overwhelming that the truth or fallacy of the matter became clear and formally (although sometimes reluctantly) recognized. Several books have been written about such matters; this is one.

A few of topics discussed here are: aviation, space exploration, cold fusion, climate change, some medical issues and a few matters tainted by politics. In most, but not all, cases the new paradigms were eventually accepted. Now the last section, which occupies about 20% of the book, pertains to psi phenomena, UFOs and alien abductions. Having illustrated that so many scientific misjudgements have been made in the past, as well as occasional resistance towards accepting the veracity (or lack thereof) of observed scientific/physical phenomena, the authors, two well-known ufologists, then argue that the same problems apply to the topics discussed in the last section. Essentially, this book appears to be a plea for more serious open-minded research in paranormal phenomena.

The writing style is lively, friendly, engaging, dense with fascinating information and quite accessible; I found it quite captivating. This book can be enjoyed by anyone, no matter what their beliefs are about paranormal phenomena. This includes science buffs and those interested in the history of science, particularly how new discoveries can be suppressed/ignored/disbelieved until the evidence becomes extraordinary.

SCIENCE was WRONG is a documentation of Scientific Claims that have been made throughout history that turned out to be completely false.

The refreshing twist about this book is that it is BASED ON FACTS! And to top that off, the authors can qualify every statement in the book.

It is an easy read because Mr. Friedman and Ms. Marden don't make the topic difficult to understand with smoke and mirrors. Pure and Simple Facts!

Regardless if you are a Science/History Buff or just are interested in the "comings and goings" in the world and how they effect us, you will get a kick out of this book. I have to warn you however, that there will be times when you roll your eyes at how silly we as human beings have historically jump to conclusions and made assumptions that did not serve us well.

In addition this book reminds you to ask questions and that it is okay to need further information before making important choices in your lives.

This is another home-run-hit by the authors Friedman and Marden.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Thomas P. Wharton on September 16, 2010
Format: Paperback
I was absolutely enthralled by this book and couldn't put it down. Brilliant, thorough research, brilliant writing. Despite my background as a physics/engineering major in college, I found the first five chapters on technology to be very informative and incredibly fascinating.

Even more enthralling were chapters 6-8 on medical science. I am a physician/cardiologist; though I knew some of the basics of what you covered in these chapters, I had no idea of the true history of these events and persons - and the egos, rigid closed minds, political battles and personal vendettas that were involved. These chapters should be required reading for anyone in the medical profession! And the one on Semmelweis should be read by every woman!

The chapter on Global Warming was the best condensed presentation of the issue that I have ever read, and completely convincing. Also, I had known next-to-nothing about the eugenics movement in the US before reading that chapter. Frightening! Equally alarming was the chapter on the massive environmental problems of mercury. The scientific data on psi phenomena and UFO's represents years of intensive scientific research and is quite compelling.

This book provided me with some of the most stimulating and enlightening reading that I've had in years. Congratulations to the authors for such brilliant research and such elegant, brilliant, gripping writing!

Format: Paperback
This book presents an intriguing look into our past. A past which is littered with examples of people making their minds up without studying the evidence. Even worse is when they do study the evidence, and they then reject certain evidence which does not fall in line with their pre-conceived positions. From mankind never gaining the ability of flight to the gay plague, many scientific advances were either hindered or stopped altogether given our tendency to follow our egos instead of the evidence. This was a very well written and well paced book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having been impressed by both the intelligence and objectivity of nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman for more than a decade, and more recently impressed by co-author Kathleen Marden's analytical mind, when I had a chance to review a friend's copy of this book, it was immediately a "I have to have my own copy" book.Science Was Wrong: Startling Truths About Cures, Theories, and Inventions "They" Declared Impossible

The content is both interesting and exciting. I would give a copy as a gift to everyone I know and be convinced they would also be captured by the content.
