British Medical Journal review

(COURTESY: wikipedia.com) "In a May 2005 book review published in the British Medical Journal, Kirby was apparently portrayed as biased and as siding with delusional conspiracy theorists by Michael Fitzpatrick, MD: "In his determination to provide an account that is sympathetic to the parents, Kirby enters into the grip of the same delusion and ends up in the same angry and paranoid universe into which campaigners have descended, alleging phone taps and other forms of surveillance as they struggle against sinister conspiracies between health authorities and drug companies."

On 23 May 2005, Kirby defended himself on the British Medical Journal's online Rapid Response board. (http://bmj.bmjjournals.com/cgi/eletters/330/7500/1154#107614)

On the British Medical Journal Rapid Response board, others offer their comments for and against the evidence in "Evidence of Harm" (http://www.evidenceofharm.com) including two autistic people in the latter group.
