Written with much urgency and some passion, with a strong dose of curmudgeonliness, it is also very disorganized: three or four coherent paragraphs, followed by two or three others unrelated to the previous ones. A wide array of topics are included: the value of the lone wolf researcher and the shortcomings of organized and bureaucratized science, ignorance of political decision makers, and numerous research findings.
