I'm sure another MD is even now writing a confident reply which repudiates the conclusions of this book and it will share the same defects.

Dar Tom
you are right to be sceptical. But note that in the acknowledgements I consulted a lot of
MDs who are expert about the medically related material. Having been in a medical dept for the past 30 yrs. I am well aware that differences of opinion can occur, but that's true of any discipline. There can be disagreement, but if the argument is backed up with evidence, then it's interpretation, and isn't that what virtually everything about the assassination boils down to. Besides, only a small part of the book is about medically-related issues. The book also deals with psychological, sociological, crimnalistics (forensics, ballistics), and related aspects. I look forward to your comments about those other parts of the book.
