The evidence of Love Canal's danger to residents is overwhelming. The book to which another reviewer refers as counterevidence (The Skeptical Environmentalist) has been widely panned in the scientific and scholarly reviews such as the journal Science as a highly flawed book which used secondary sources out of by:   Lois spends most of this book just rambling on about her life and family rather than the Love Canal disaster and what was done about it.

I wanted to know the past of the chemical factory, what Love Canal book dumped there and what happened to the residents and what people did to clean it up, not about Lois' family and their income/social life/5. However, many other Love Canals laid dormant in the U.S. at the time this book was published.

The profound and devastating effects of the Love Canal tragedy, in terms of human health and suffering and environmental damage, cannot and probably will never be fully measured [w]e cannot undo the damage that has been wrought at Love Canal but we can take appropriate preventive measures so that we are better able to anticipate and hopefully prevent future events of this kind.
