Get off the Sofa: A prescription for a healthier l&hellip by Andrew Curran

The merest mention of healthy lifestyle, healthy diet, healthy anything much normally has me reaching for the nearest poisonous snack or filthy glass of booze. But Dr Andrew Curran's "Get Off The Sofa" wins the dubious prize of being the first book about how I should be looking after my body that I read cover to cover in less than 24 hours.

One of the oldest clichés in the world of books on medical topics is that they must always be written by "qualified experts." This is nonsense. In fact when I am working with healthcare clients on writing material for patients to read, I always say that probably the LAST people in the world who should write it are doctors or scientists. With the best will in the world, they're too close to it, too hamstrung by protocol and scientific etiquette, and they can't know how it feels to be a patient. What experienced journalists like Stuart Brown offer, however, is they have been trained to know how it feels - as well as to ask the same questions to which ordinary mortals want answers… Read more
