Editorial Reviews


"In Specious Science, the Greeks have built an unassailable case against the animal model as a logical and scientific basis for progress in modern medicine. This book ought to be read by every physician and medical researcher. One hopes also that it will be read by every employee of the FDA and NIH, and every legislator responsible for funding these agencies, which still make decisions based on the archaic use of animals in medical research." - Gene Brewer, author of the K-PAX trilogy

"In Specious Science the Greeks demonstrate that the deeper and more extensively anyone digs into the medical literature, the more scientific evidence s/he can unearth demonstrating that animal experimentation is not only unnecessary but can be misleading and even dangerous when its findings are applied to human conditions." - The Civil Abolitionist (Civitas)

"Greek and Greek's specific examples of drugs that had to be withdrawn from human use because of the side effects that did not show up in animal trials (and vice versa, examples of valuable drugs that harm animals but not humans) are particularly thought provoking." - KLIATT

"Specious Science dares to burst open the doors of the vivisectors' world to reveal their murk and deception, motivations and lies. It describes exactly why medical research on nonhuman animals is corrupt, bad science, and just plain wrong….Specious Science is a brave work." - Vegan Voice

"For animal rights readers. Lower-division undergraduates through graduate students; two-year technical program students."
—Choice, October 2002
