Afterword
I learned of this book from one of my wisest friends (Alan). I know it rocked his world. Now, more than a year later, Alexey Guzey has published what can only be described as a demolition of Walker’s work. It seems many of the assertions Walker makes are contrary to the weight of scientific evidence. I’d urge that you at least read Guzey’s piece before taking any of Walker’s thinking to heart.
