" . . .a wonderful piece of forensic writing." - Financial Times

"Reich pursues this affair in depth . . .does an excellent job of dealing with the facts of the Schoen case" - Martin Blume, Nature

"Reich s readable account of a fairly recent science fraud, is valuable chiefly as a close look at the "kitchen" where scientific results are assembled and validated - and whence occasionally comes forth something that should not have seen the light of day." - John Derbyshire, The Wall Street Journal

"Eugenie Samuel Reich offers an inside look into how the scientific establishment deals with human imperfection. Plastic Fantastic is a transfixing cautionary tale of how easily wrongdoers can hide and thrive in modern science." - Joerg Blech, author of Inventing Disease and Pushing Pills
