[In 2016, it came to light that the author had not followed “commonly accepted standards with regard to the utilization and documentation of secondary sources” (publisher’s statement). While this commentary had been well reviewed and is still a valuable resource, care should be exercised when citing it in academic work, as it is not clear which portions of the text are original to the author and which have been plagiarized.]
