Sayyidna Abu Bakr, himself a Hafidh, and the greatest of the Companions, affirmed the final compilation. A reader may wonder what all this has to do with the specific questions that has been enquired about in the question, and why I am mentioning all this?!
That is not to say, however, that we should not investigate and grapple with difficult or controversial texts. Furthermore, the concept of Tawaatir is another binding proof, where a large number of people all relay and agree on the same information, so much so that it is impossible that they are lying or mistaken.

However, if one reads further on in the same book and looks at other biographic books, we find a different picture, and that Ibn Abu Dawud is held by the majority of scholars of hadith as an Imam in the science, and indeed many of his contemporaries and subsequent scholars of hadith stated that he was more expert in kiyab than his own father!
