    One thought on “Callous Disregard: Autism and Vaccines--The Truth Behind a Tragedy”

    1. poorly written book by a disgraced doctor with an introduction by a playboy centerfolde sequel to this, Charlatan by pope brock is much better written and shows how medicine like wakefield's can succeed.

    2. English physician Andrew Wakefield's research showed a link between the MMR vaccine, bowel problems and potentially autism. As a result he lost his license to practice medicine in England. This book tells his side of the story, declaring how government defends the pharmaceutical industry over children. This is not an easy book to read. You have to have a good understanding of medical terminology to follow it. You also need a good understanding of Wakefield's story before reading the book as he s [...]

    3. I was able to see Dr. Wakefield speak last week and bought the book at the event. I'm glad that he is still out there working for the truth over established norms. Vaccines are meant to cause an extreme reaction in the body; that's just how they work. I'm interested to see how he lays out his conclusions and how he was railroaded by the British Medical Board. After seeing his presentation I am convinced he was railroaded.The opening warns you that this is a dry boring book, full of medical fact [...]

    4. I found this book to be well documented, insightful, and a good review of research criteria past and present. Although I will leave a window of doubt open regarding how well Dr. Wakefield has been able to avoid the pitfalls of noteriety, it is my belief that his opponents continue to attack him from a misinformed platform; that MMR vaccine CAUSES autism. I respectfully ask that they read the research and respond to the associations found between gut health and autism, which was the major premise [...]

    5. Its scary what the media can accomplish when there is an agenda. Everything I thought I knew was just a distortion of the truth. You don't have to believe him, but you should really understand what happened before commenting one way or the other.

    6. The book was interesting, read like a text book.I have heard of too many people whose kids got autism after the vaccine. In my mind there is no way that it is not related. I do not think we can trust the big corporations that make the vaccine. For them it is all about $$.

    7. I would give this book zero starts if I could. This book is incredibly difficult to follow and poorly written. It screams of a child caught doing something bad who is saying, "Yea, I was caught and did something wrong , but " Not worth your time.

    8. brilliant and due diligence documentationClear rebuttal for all the wrongful charges. A witch hunt by contemporary academic and physician leagues to protect their trade and self interest. A persecution like the day of Galileo and the medieval church yes still medieval with relentless brutality to protect their own survival. Yet nature can not be killed by cowardice and ignorance.

    9. It was fascinating to hear his side of the story. The information he covers is startling and it really allows you to see how it works from the inside. He does have an axe to grind and the detail he goes into while trying to address each false claim is dry but I understand why he did it and I would be doing the same. Thank goodness for people like Andrew Wakefield, may the universe lay her bountiful blessings upon you.

    10. This is about the complex legal process that resulted in Dr Wakefield's being (unjustly) struck off the medical register. Although it's well-written, parts of it probably need to be read twice to be fully comprehended. That's why I gave it only three stars.

    11. I totally believe Dr Wakefield's story. He was treated unfairly and dishonestly. It drives me nuts seeing him thrown under the bus and lied about on a seemingly daily basis to this day. Seriously, people need to find a new scapegoat; they have beat this one to death. At any rate, the book itself was a little dry, and occasionally hard to follow. I am glad I read it none the less. I was after the other side of the story, not entertainment. Many children are suffering without proper research being [...]

    12. Wakefield has caused an incredible amount of harm to the world with his theories, none of which have ever held up to scrutiny. He used a sample of 12 children and from that declared MMR dangerous and recommended cessation. That is about as irresponsible as it gets. His study has been reviewed and analyzed, and millions of children in several countries have been studied, and not once has he been validated.The best thing that could happen is if his works are gathered up, put in a pile and burned, [...]

    13. Not really what I was expecting. While I agree the author was very badly treated by the medical establishment, I found the book got a bit tedious after a while because he spent all his time defending his actions and at great length. I would like to have seen more general information about how the vaccines industry operates.

    14. This is not really a book. It's more of a collection of law-medical articles and position papers. While the intent is there, this book just doesn't communicate anything to the general population. It reads like a series of notes. The logic is not very easy to follow and the writing is unclear.
