9780465026241: Galileo's Revenge: Junk Science in ihe Courtroom

A scathing indictment of the growing role of junk science in our courtrooms. Peter W. Huber shows how time and again lawyers have used—and the courts have accepted—spurious claims by so-called expert witnesses to win astronomical judgments that have bankrupted companies, driven doctors out of practice, and deprived us all of superior technologies and effective, life-saving therapies.

From the Back Cover:

This is a book about scientific cranks and iconoclasts who peddle their strange diagnostics and quack cures not at country fairs but in courtrooms across the land.
