    1. Un testo di estrema chiarezza ed efficacia. Letto con piacere e velocità. Mi ha reso molto chiare -- più di quanto abbia fatto lo stesso autore -- le tesi di Cavallo e perché non potessero funzionare, soprattutto in merito al loro essere estremamente avvolte da motivazioni ideologiche, più che da effettive prove fisiche.
