Sorry Brain Man, but did you really look at that book?

For one, it contains articles that have not passed peer review. Pitkanen's article is one of them. In fact, there are very few articles contained there that have gone through peer review. The problem is that those articles were not written specifically for that book, so, in this case, peer review matters.

Secondly, 90% of Pitkanen's references are his own work! And of those that aren't most have not been published and have not passed peer-review.

That book looks fishy. I cannot find it in print, seems that it exists only on Google Books or online. And one of the authors seems to have a record for fringe hypothesis. Read here:
