Wikicompany has listed Project Day Lily written by Prof. Garth L. Nicolson and Dr. Nancy L. Nicolson and published by Xlibris among the most relevantbooks published since the year 1530.
Project Day Lily was listed with 7 other books published in 2006 and can be found on the website:

Project Day Lily is based on the events surrounding "Gulf War Syndrome"suffered by over 200,000 veterans (and tens of thousands dead) and their family members without proper acknowledgment or treatment to keep secret the origin of their illnesses. This is the true story of the discovery of a biological agent in veterans' blood by two American scientists, as part of a massive testing program in the military and prisons, and how various academic and government employees did everything in their power to keep this information secret, including murder.
Their discovery of a chronic infection in Gulf War Illnesses, a ChronicFatigue Syndrome disease, provided researchers with a possible explanation (later confirmed) for other disorders: Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Autism, Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome,Scleroderma, and other illnesses.

Some comments on the book:

Being a health professional for 40 years, I have always held scientific research and discovery in respect. However, since personally experiencing the ravages of a chronic Mycoplasma infection, receiving help and guidance from the Nicolsons over the past 10 years and in turn helping others, I now have a slightly different perspective. The Nicolsons are great storytellers of intrigue and menace in the scientific research world.Breaking the mold of traditional suspense novels, Project Day Lily is based on fact--many facts of which I can attest. The book is simultaneously intelligent and believable. It is intricately layered with remarkable research and detail from the opening pages to the conclusion.It is a fascinating, absorbing, eye-opening page-turner.
Project Day Lilyhas alerted me of the danger that public policy could easily become thecaptive of the scientific technologically elite. I suspect that it may be happening more than any of us would want to know. And God help those of us who are unsuspecting victims! Sharon Briggs, M.S.N., R.N.,Mycoplasma Support, Shasta CFIDS
In "Project Day Lily" the Nicolsons tell their personal saga that is intertwined with major events and forces in recent American history. This linear narrative testifies about the strength of authors' perceptions and convictions. It is also a story of transformation of a couple of scientists into advocates for causes that they believe in so deeply. Stanimir Vuk-Pavlovic, Ph.D., Professor of Biochemistry and MolecularBiology, Mayo Clinic Graduate School.
A great read, complex and convoluted but compulsive. Science and politics are intricately intertwined in this chonologue. The world of scientific research is shown in its reality: academic altruism and isolation of the scientists on the one hand and the political gamesmanship, enterprise and exploitiveness that is often used to achieve the funding to allow the work to continue on the other. Tim Roberts, Ph.D., Acting ProVice-Chancellor, Assistant Dean International,Assistant Dean Postgraduate Coursework,Faculty of Science and Information TechnologyUniversity of Newcastle (Australia)
I received the very first draft and read it with increasing amazement as Iwas going along. I knew Garth Nicolson from his days at the Salk Institute and knew he was (is) of sound mind. The implications, medical and political, of what is revealed in "Project Day Lily" are major. If you are interested in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, or the problems of our Veterans with Gulf War Syndrome, you will want to read this book, think, and wonder. Roger Guillemin, M.D., Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, Nobel Laureate inMedicine, The Salk Institute, San Diego
During the first Gulf Conflict, Operation Desert Storm, nearly every level of government, the military, and the American people assumed that Iraq had completely failed to deploy or initiate the use of biological weapons.Leading up to the war, I directed the military component of a joint biological detection project with scientists from Stanford Research Institute. At the conclusion of the combat, even after being presented with evidence that suggested biological agents had indeed found their wayto the battlefield, I dismissed the reports of Gulf War Illness. That is,until soldiers in my command and their families developed illnesses that could only be attributed to their service in the Gulf or their association with people and material that had been returned from Iraq. In my search for the truth, I met Dr. Garth Nicolson. He was a lone, and much maligned,voice in the quest for a cure. Project Day Lily is a riveting and profound essay on what really happened. It's time the public knew the truth. Gerald Schumacher, Colonel,U.S. Army Special Forces (ret)
I received a draft of the book Project Day Lily, and I was deeply impressed by the courage of Professor Garth Nicolson and his wife Dr.Nancy Nicolson, who were determined to uncover the mystery of the "GulfWar Syndrome". Professor Nicolson, who is a prominent scientist, provided evidence, that the"Syndrome", was not due to psychological effects, which caused the suffering of more than 150,000 veterans, but was the result of infection with a Mycoplasma strain, which was apparently modified genetically. As this approach contradicted the official version, the two scientists were attacked mentally and physically and had to leave their positions and to establish a new Institute--The Institute for Molecular Medicine--where they could continue their studies without interference.This book provides an interesting insight into the relationship of science and politics in the United States. It describes the experience of two devoted scientists, who did not hesitate to tell the true story about the Gulf War Syndrome. I am sure that every reader will be deeply impressed.Uriel Bachrach, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus,Hebrew Hadassah University, Jerusalem
