"I just realized from my own knowledge that some of this stuff in the book is just plain wrong," said LaClair..

A high schooler's knowledge vs published work by two authors? Exactly where did this knowledge originate? Has it been validated? Or does it disagree with dogma substituted for "knowledge"?

To be fair I caught textbook errors as far back as 7th grade. I actually wrote in about a painting claiming to show American battleships at the Battle of Midway. I noted that the ships were clearly cruisers and documented that fact that our heaviest surface action forces were carriers and cruisers. I never got a response.

And don't get me started on my textbooks for AP US and European history.
