    It could be interesting to read things from Judy's point of view.
    I wonder how much scientific detail is included in the book.

    I just received an e-mail notice from an independent bookseller (in the S.F. Bay Area) where I have purchased books in the past stating that they will have a book signing for the Plague on November 22nd. Here is the announcement for the book signing.

    http://www.rakestrawbooks.com/upcoming-events

    "Local attorney turned science teacher, Kent Heckenlively visits on Saturday, 22 November 2014 at 3:30 PM to sign his new book, Plague: One Scientist's Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Me/Cfs), Autism, and Other Diseases."

    I just received my book, a few days ago. I'm only 1/3 of the way into it but it's excellent so far.

    I am reading the book now and enjoying it. I'm on page 292.

    Worth every penny.

    If a reader(s) of the book could post some summaries or key points ( don't want to infringe on copyrights) that would be appreciated. My cognitive stuff keeps me from reading more then little blurbs. Even those can be challenges. I used to buy all the books anyways, but I have a stack sitting here and it's time to let go of that for now.

    Thank you .

    I finished the book and found it fascinating. The amount of information in the book is staggering.

    People can read the book themselves and come to their own conclusions.

    I'm reading it slowly. Harvey Whittemore does not come across as a nice chap.

    No, he's not, and equally disturbing is how he convinced a judge to illegally jail and innocent scientist. Greed, money and corruption doesn't have to play by the rules. The real criminal is in jail.
