This paperback edition includes rebuttals by Dr. Pauling to criticisms of his views as they were presented in the original edition.
Dr. Pauling has not been always fairly treated for his advocacy of adequate trials of large doses of ascorbic acid for prevention of "the common cold," but he has invited criticism by vigorously promoting a proposed therapy to a large and critically unqualified audience before adequate trials have been done.
