Partial list of books
I originally removed, and reverted, the "partial list of books" that was added when the page was created. After looking at other authors, I realize this is acceptable when ISBN numbers are included, or a reference is provided that the book was published. - Davandron | Talk 04:15, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
The following books do not have ISBN numbers associated with them, please update when this info is available.
* The Mystery of the Aleph: Mathematics, Kabbalah and the Search for Infinity * Chance: A Guide to Gambling, Love and the Stock Market * The Riddle of the Compass: The Invention that Changed the World * Pendulum: Léon Foucault and the Triumph of Modern Science * God's Equation: Einstein, Relativity and the Expanding Universe * Descartes' Secret Notebook * The Jesuit and the Skull: Teilhard de Chardin, Evolution, and the Search for Peking Man

Undid what seemed like defamatory statements about plagiarism, not strongly stated in referenced article and here described as "substantial"--which they were not--and which I responded to satisfactorily and completely in a letter published in the Washington Post in 2006. Seems like the writer had a personal axe to grind here. This did not belong in an encyclopedia. Wikidokman (talk) 02:17, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
