In my opinion, we shouldn't even be talking about that.
As long as this thread is in The Book Nook, we should be talking about whether the book is well written, whether it is well researched, whether it is available as an e-book or in paperback, reviews of the book that appear elsewhere, etc.
Extensive discussion of the thesis should be in a different forum (in my opinion), rather than here.
