"Lopez-Corredoira's account of the state of science is a harsh, but necessary contrast to the media-amplified non-results of current scientific practice. His historical and philosophical perspective is unique among science critics, but - one may say unfortunately - well grounded. As a truely original thinker, he's not afraid of anything or anybody while denouncing the decline of real science. Surely not an optimistic view, but it seems to be just true."
(Dr. Alexander Unzicker, Germany; physicist, neuroscientist, author of "Bankrupting Physics")
"This book is dynamite. Corredoira is a whistle blower who is to be congratulated for having the fortitude to break ranks with the old boy's scientific network and expose what has come to be an unbearable situation. (...) Corredoira has given voice to problems in the practice of science that for a long time many of us have felt existed."
(Dr. Paul A. LaViolette, USA; philosopher, physicist, author of "Subquantum Kinetics")
"The general thesis of the book, that progress in science requires more and more resources to achieve smaller and smaller results, and thus science has to decline, is inescapable I think. The symptoms of this phenomenon, such as specialization and bureaucratization, that also become accelerants of the phenomenon, are also inescapable. (...) "The Twilight of the Scientific Age" is a grim read, but the arguments are, unfortunately, robust."
(Dr. David M. Nataf, Australia; astrophysicist, postdoctoral research fellow at Australian National University)
"The book by Dr. López Corredoira describes the way science is done these days. After a nice introduction on how high-impact scientific discoveries have been done in the past, he analyzes how the scientific world works, stressing in a very effective ways its current limitations, and its intrinsic incapability to lead to crucial discoveries. I feel he is mostly right, being myself deeply involved in the system. I recommend this book to any active researcher."
(Dr. Giovanni Carraro, Chile; astronomer, staff researcher of European Southern Observatory)
"The message of this book is both simple and arresting: Success has spoiled science, in fact, has spoiled it rotten. (...) the author covers many of the sins of repression that must be laid at the door of the established scientific communication system (publication and refereeing). (...) he shows a remarkable sensitivity to the worm’s eye view peculiar to those the system grinds under its heel: the people who neither offer nor ask for money, but who offer unconventional ideas."
