A reference to the author and this book: http://liberapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Alex_B._Berezow

Despite (or because of) engaging in the "ad hominem" attacks that they decry in the book, the authors still failed to persuasively make their case that the "Left" is more anti-science than the "Right". Their chapter on 'inherent" gender differences was particularly weak. Instances where they conflate things like brain size and intelligence to make a point are especially ludicrous (elephants' brains weigh approx. ten pounds. Are elephants smarter than humans?) Berezow and Campbell push a free market philosophy in the case of newly-created, lightly-researched pharmaceuticals but fail to endorse the labeling of "GMOs" so that consumers in the free market can decide whether, or not, they want to buy genetically-modified food. Book is "deeply unimpressive".
