FYI, the books written as adjuncts to curriculm (commonly referred to as the School and Library market -- the ones that end up on your library bookshelves) often undergo rigorous inspection. I wrapped up my fifth such book for The Millbrook Press / Twenty First Century Books division just a month ago. In all cases, I did the research, often consulting with SMEs. The manuscript then underwent review by a fact checker, who worked with my bibliography (not printed in the books). After I made any necessary corrections, it then went on to review by an independent expert reader with qualifications in the particular field, and I made corrections based on his/her feedback. From my experience, I'd trust the facts in TFCB's books. Mine are for a middle school - high school audience...see for details.
