SIDELIGHTS: Donald R. Forsdyke told CA: "A different motivation drove the writing of each of my books. Tomorrow's Cures Today? How to Reform the Health Research System points to fundamental problems in the system of research funding peer review, and proposes reforms. The Origin of Species, Revisited draws attention to new evidence from the bio-informatic analysis of genomes, which points to the need for a scientific reevaluation of Darwin's classic text."
