‘This is, on the whole, a fair account of BSE and the BSE crisis ... the overwhelming message is the lamentable part played by the Government. There is a second welcome message about governmental ignorance and misunderstanding of science. I enjoyed reading the book, as a readable, popular account. Most scientists will be pleased that it extols the virtues of academic as opposed to commercially driven research. The author ends with an excellent set of suggestions for food safety and for the Government understanding of science.’
