society, Marcia Angell presents an excellent case study of
what's wrong. Using her impressive credentials, she
critically reviews the silicone breast implant case and
examines the roles of greed, ideology, junk science,
sensationalism and ignorance in this controversy.
Specifically, she highlights two issues: the flaws in the
legal system in evaluating science, and the rejection of
sound scientific consensus. You come away with a strong
sense of how people misunderstand science and of how values
and politics influence science.
For anybody worried about the future of science and society,
this is an important book. It reinforces the perception of
the decline of science in the public perception.
