This is cited in Glaser and Strauss as follows: "Note for instance how gullible or unsuspecting
readers can believe wholly in purposeful fake accounts such as Baker..."

Frankly, I do not know what the reference in Glaser and Strauss means. The book is clearly satire
and there is no effort to hide it. There is no way a reader could be "unsuspecting" once he or she
opened the book. In any case, there are some mild chuckles to the whole but it is not the National
Lampoon.

The essays have been collected from magazines, mostly journals, in psychology but also from
science fiction magazines.
