How can I say this having not read the book you say?
Here is how - look at this picture from the book (when it went by a different title):
It shows digits (fingers) forming as the result of wrinkles in the body 'tube' as it bends.
Sorry, I teach embryology. I've seen embryoes. Digits do not form as little wrinkles in the body tube. They form from the ends of the limb buds that extend out from the body wall.
This information is easily and readily available to all who seek it. I read some comments from Pivar on a blog that criticizes his claims in which he declares that he has lots of embryological information to support his notions.
I say, No you don't.
In addition, the one glowing review above is deserving of suspicion, as the endorsements of Pivar's work mentioned in a silly press release here:
seem to have been produced via doctored quotes having nothing at all to do with this book.
I say - Scrap it. Leave biology to biologists.
