Unfortunately, even when Ling tries to write to a more general audience than other cell physiologists, he comes up far short. In the introduction he suggests this book is appropriate for high school biology students. I can say that I've taken high school biology, and college biology, physiology, chemistry, neurology, anatomy, biochemisty and others. And this book is very challenging reading.
One wonders if Ling has been engrossed in his technical world so long that he doesn't realize the level of expertise needed to fully understand his thesis. Or perhaps he has simply lost the ability to convey his ideas without continuous reference to all the equations and chemistry. Of course those aspects are important for advanced researchers who might replicate his work. But embedding them in the text virtually assures that his ideas will remain obscure to those who might otherwise be persuaded to learn more about his work.
I'm spending time on these criticisms in order to prepare any potential readers. It is a difficult book to read.
That said, it is full of fascinating information if one is willing to sort through the data to find the jewels. By the end one has no doubt that Ling's work is founded upon the most rigorous science possible. Further (and most importantly), one is left with little doubt that Ling is on to something huge.Read more ›
Reads like a novel, well documented with scientific references. A must read for anybody that demands TRUTH.
