Reviews - 1

I thought that people might be interested in some of the pre-publication reviews of The Hockey Stick Illusion - I'll post these up over the next week or so. Here's the one that was chosen for the cover:

This is a thriller about codebreaking – not Napoleon's or Hitler's codes, but computer codes that generated a false signal to the world about runaway global warming. Like most codebreaking it was painfully slow but Montford keeps the drama pacy as the years pass, while he explains the intricacies in the plainest possible language. By military codebreaking, the likes of Scovell and Turing helped to change the course of history, and McIntyre and McKitrick should soon do the same, when the statistical fudges that misled the politicians become more widely known.

Former editor, New Scientist
co-author, The Chilling Stars

"Author of 'The Chilling Stars'". Right.

This is getting almost as incestuous as the warmists. (And I'm on your side!..)

I heard McKitrick speak here in Vancouver shortly after his and McIntyre's book, "Taken by Storm" came out. His topic was how very hard it had been to pry information loose from Mann and others. This was the first I had heard of the kerfuffle, and I found it appalling. The debasement of the entire scientific ethic enraged me, but it also saddened me.
Best of luck on your own book. I think The Great Ju-Ju has begun to smile upon us ever so slightly.

Regarding getting your book published in the U.S., how about sending that review and a copy of your book to Calder's publisher of "The Chilling Stars?" Svensmark's and Clader's book was excellent, by the way, and I'm looking forward to reading yours.

Am I glad I preordered your book! Now I'm just hoping there won't be another blizzard next week to prevent delivery.
