    “[A] smart, delightful book. Galileo’s Middle Finger is . . . an account of the author’s transformation ‘from an activist going after establishment scientists into an aide-de-camp to scientists who found themselves the target of activists like me’—and back again . . . I suspect most readers will find that [Dreger’s] witnessing of these wild skirmishes provides a splendidly entertaining education in ethics, activism, and science.”New York Times Book Review
