I have been an AIDS dissident (or "denialist" if you prefer) for over a decade now. I have allegedly been HIV-positive for 16 years, initially as a believer in HIV/AIDS, but I later became a doubter after my years of research kept turning up facts that simply didn't add up. Today, I am an AIDS dissident activist and an avid supporter of the cause endorsed by Charles Ortleb and others.
When I read "The Closing Argument", I found it to be amateurish, preachy, overbearing, and utterly lacking in any literary merit.
I am not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that I've seen better stuff written by "D" students in a 5th grade English class, and I've seen TV screenwriters who appeared to have a better grasp on what actually transpires in a courtroom. It is literally the worst thing I have ever read, and I've read some real stinkers.
The book is (mercifully) quite thin, and as such, it would make an excellent choice for leveling a table that is wobbly. However, if you have no wobbly tables that need leveling, the only possible use I could think of for this book (other than toilet paper) is for orthodox Troofers to recommend it ironically, as part of a campaign to portray AIDS dissidents as stupid and utterly divorced from reality.
The only reason I can think of that an AIDS dissident might recommend this book to anyone is if he hadn't actually read the book himself, and had no idea what a stinking, steaming piece of crap it is.
Mr. Ortleb, I support your cause, and for what it's worth I think your book has a great premise. However, you need to wrap that premise in a book that is actually worth reading. This one, unfortunately, is not.
