 It is common in the cases of books written for the "public"  for publishers to 
disallow detailed scientific references. The publishers seem to think that 
such will put people off buying. I have found this when writing a book on 
Just because the references aren't quoted doesn't mean that the statements 
are false.

Unreasonable criticism. If Ag Schnozz can be such a whizz at devising 
telecom etc networks, surely a Nobel Prize winner can be ( in fact will need 
to be) expert in a range of related topics.

The book is easily available, and cheap in the USA, used or overstocked.
