Verbatim has always been a great source of ideas and amusement, as well as a superb resource for language of all kind. For those who don't just like words, but treat them like a fine wine to be tasted and savoured.
This edition has the fine distinction of finding the "Woozle Effect" and moving out of the fusty and dusty pages of sociology and criminology. Whilst the Woozle may sound Whimsical, coming from the pages of Winnie-the-Pooh, it is a most serious and none timorous beastie.
The errors created by incorrect and improper use of data and citation can and do cause the mass misuse of information, the allocation of funds to the wrong causes and political Tom Foolery of the highest order as the embarrassed work out how to cover their own Woozles.
