Description

"From an expert with a mail-order PhD to debunking the myths of homeopathy, Ben Goldacre talking the reader through some notable cases and shows how to you don't need a science degree to spot "bad science" yourself."

-Independent (Book of the Year) 


"His book aims to teach us better, in the hope that one day we write less nonsense."

- Daily Telegraph (Book of the Year) 


"For sheer savagery, the illusion-destroying, joyous attack on the self-regarding, know-nothing orthodoxies of the modern middle classes, "Bad Science" can not be beaten. You'll laugh your head off, then throw all those expensive health foods in the bin."

- Trevor Philips, Observer (Book of the Year)


"Unmissable! Laying about himself in a froth of entirely justified indignation, Goldacre slams the mountebanks and bullshitters who misuse science. Few escape: drug companies, self-styled nutritionists, deluded researchers and journalists all get thoroughly duffed up. It is enormously enjoyable."

-The Times (Book of the Year)


"Thousands of books are enjoyable; many are enlightening; only a very few will ever rate as necessary to social health.

This is one of them.'"

-Independent


"It is an important book and if you were to pick up just one non-fiction book this year you'd do well to make it this one'"
- Benjamin Beasley-Murray, Daily Mail
