This review provides a detailed analysis of Verdugo's book. The impact of the book's title and chapter headings are investigated, and the writing style is critiqued. Further, Verdugo's reasons for writing the book and any potential conflicts of interest are investigated. Finally, the scholarship, credibility, and the ultimate success or failure of the book are analyzed.
