Casey Luskin reviews "Monkey Girl"
I started to read "Monkey Girl" but stopped after reading about a third of it because the slow activity in the "customer reviews" section of Amazon.com showed that the book -- which was initially touted as the definitive book about the case -- was going to be a dud, comparatively speaking. I did post a partly negative customer review of the book on Amazon.com, and this blog has several articles about the book under the post label "Monkey Girl" in the sidebar of the home page.
Luskin declined an invitation to be interviewed for the book and so IMO he is not in a good position to condemn the book's one-sidedness.
So often I see the recommendation, "if you are going to read just one book about the Kitzmiller v. Dover case, read this one," and that's just plain wrong. Reading nothing at all is better than just reading a single source. One should read a variety of sources to get a broad perspective.
