AJ, perhaps you might read Elliot's book for yourself. It is one thing to read Hanko's review of Elliot's book and another to just read it for yourself. I have not read the whole book but what I have read, is very well researched and documented. I was not happy with what he wrote for it hit too close to home for me. I would however rather hear the truth of where some of my friends and professors stood than wonder what it was that just didn't seem right.

The Chestnut Mare
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost.
