The Great Cholesterol Con: The Truth About What Really Causes Heart Disease and How to Avoid It
The Great Cholesterol Con: The Truth About What Really Causes Heart Disease and How to Avoid It
Price: £4.19

3.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting medical research - dreadfully presented, 31 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The research is convincing, the analysis and conclusions seem good.
Cholesterol is not a risk factor for heart disease.
Statins are a (potentially) dangerous and unhelpful intervention for most men and all women.
So why am I not giving the book more stars?
Well, it's because the first half of the book is written in the style of a smartypants schoolboy.
It is AWFUL!
I found myself fascinated by the research one moment, then cringing with embarrassment for the author for his silly comments.
There is no way I could recommend the book to anybody because the writing is so bad.
That is a massive editorial fail by the publisher, who should have told Dr Kendrick to let the facts speak for themselves and to cut out all the facile asides.
The second half of the book is much better, because the writing quality improves.
I'm going to follow Malcolm Kendrick's recommendations myself, but is a great disappointment I cannot recommend it to friends and colleagues.

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I cried.
I literally cried with laughing and could not read on when it came to the story of the giant turd left in the toilet.
I had to pass the book over to everybody else so they could understand.
Then the same thing happened to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most comfortable boots, 16 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great boots.
I've always thought that Hunters were over-priced and just fashionable, not practical.
I bought a pair because my daughter loved hers, they looked well made, and I found them at half-price on Amazon.
I'me very happy I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anker 8400mAh external battery pack, 5 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a small, solidly built, well designed device. I use it to charge my iPad, nexus 7, Nokia 700, and blackberry.
It works well and though I have no similar charger to compare it with, I can recommend it.
