    Ben Goldacre's wise and witty bestseller, shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize, lifts the lid on quack doctors, flaky statistics, scaremongering journalists and evil pharmaceutical corporations.

In this eye-opening book he takes on the MMR hoax and misleading cosmetics ads, acupuncture and homeopathy, vitamins and mankind's vexed relationship with all manner of 'toxins'. Along the way, the self-confessed 'Johnny Ball cum ... Show more

Reviews of Bad Science

Peta P

Seriously good science

by Peta P on May 22, 2014

Really enjoyed this book - learnt quite a bit that was new, refreshed on stuff I'd forgotten. Particularly liked the placebo section. I have long thought that the placebo affect is a powerful tool which needs to be harnessed and not something that is seen as an unfortunate effect that needs to be dealt with. And as a complementary therapist I too am weary of us trying to jump through the hoops that government and main stream medicine seem to insist we jump through. Complementary therapy is effective but individual. It is unlikely that we will ever be able to satisfy the mainstream so lets just stop trying and use our energy on getting people healthier and happier - which we are very good at. This book made a decision to stop spending energy on research within my therapy and concentrate on my clients and their improvements much easier. So Thank You Ben!
