I want to believe that this book wasn't a total loss - and I do hope that this will prove to be the case. My fear is that most people (like your brother) will do as people naturally do - that is to say, they will simply gloss over the...shall we say, 'inconvenient' aspects (Auschwitz), and latch onto the more "comfortable" assertions (by Cole, Irving, etc.) that the 'rest of it' really DID happen as stated, and thus, the broader Revisionist message is more or less lost (or worse, "disproven") entirely. Thus, the real deniers of truth will say, so what if a few details aren't 100% true - on the whole it STILL happened, and hence Revisionism is ultimately just "nit-picking" and all the usual accusations.
Right, and its too bad the very last line of the appendix, and thus of the book, is what it is. People reading the book will be left with that as his last thought. You know I think I'll give a copy of the book to a friend and see what they conclude about it, as a kind of experiment or mini-focus group, lol.
