"The War on Science is an essential work, a game changer, and probably the most important book you'll read this year."—Greg Laden, ScienceBlogs

"Otto marshals an astonishingly broad range of facts, trends and history to make his case. that science, by its nature, does not fear or favor any single human being or group. Thus, the knowledge it produces almost invariably upsets the status quo, challenging whomever or whatever depends on that status quo for their staying power."—Scientific American

 “We're seeing right now a titanic battle between the power of science and the power of money—and money is winning. This book explains why, and offers some pointers that might get us back on the right track.”—Bill McKibben, author and co-founder of

 “Otto makes a case that can't be refuted. Science is important to all of us, especially the US government. He backs it up with peer reviewed studies, carefully researched numbers, and his own extensive experience. He uses the process of science to prove that we need science in order to remain free. Here's hoping all voters everywhere take him seriously—soon.”—Bill Nye the Science Guy
