Review Revisited: James Herrick’s Scientific Mythologies

A long time ago, in a parallel blogoverse, I reviewed James Herrick’s book Scientific Mythologies.

Almost 2 1/2 years later, D. G. D. Davidson has posted a review on his blog, in which he disagrees with me about the extent of the book’s awfulness.

In between the two, Gabriel McKee also reviewed the book.

Since it has been so long since I read the book and wrote the review, I will not try to defend the details of my analysis. And however much Davidson may disagree with me, he too finds the book disappointing in certain respects. Have other readers of this blog read the book more recently than I have? What did you make of it? Whose review most closely reflects your own impressions, if any of them?

    Thanks for the link, and thanks, too, for pointing me to McKee’s review. I had missed that one.

    Thanks for taking the time to mention and interact with my review!
