Description

We are constantly bombarded with inaccurate, contradictory and sometimes misleading information-until now. Ben Goldacre masterfully dismantles the dubious science behind some of the great drug trials, court cases and missed opportunities of our time. He also shows us the fascinating story of how we know what we know, and gives us the tools to uncover bad science for ourselves.

Professional reviews

"'You'll laugh your head off and then throw all those expensive health foods in the bin.' THE OBSERVER BOOK OF THE YEAR 'If you're a fan of his Saturday column in this newspaper you won't need any encouragement from me to buy this passionate, hard-hitting, meticulously researched and often very funny swipe at the so-called experts, downright quacks and media flakes who populate the world of science. Nutritionists and advocates of homeopathic medicine come off worst. Mea culpa. I reviewed a health book a couple of years ago by a vitamin-pill guru who turns out to be one of Goldacre's biggest bêtes noires. I never liked omega-3 anyway.' SUE ARNOLD, THE GUARDIAN"
