Product description

Review

‘The most important book you’ll read this year, and quite possibly the funniest.’
Charlie Brooker

‘Bad Science inroduces the basic scientific principles to help everyone to become an effective bullshit detector.’
Sir Iain Chalmers, Founder of the Cochrane Library'

“There are two compelling reasons to read this book. The first is to revel in its systematic dismantling of the nonsense put forth by nutritionists, homeopaths, cosmetic companies and the pharmaceutical industry in their attempts to persuade us to buy their products or buy into their philosophy. The second is for the fascinating discussion of why we are so easily duped, and what inclines us to see patterns in randomness or cause where there are none. Throw in the book's sheer entertainment value and you have one the essential reads of the year so far” New Scientist

“A hugely entertaining book…While every chapter is entertaining, a few are genuinely eye-opening…This isn't just an essential primer for anyone who has ever felt uneasy about news coverage of faddish scientific 'breakthroughs', health scares and 'studies have shown' stories – it should be on the National Curriculum.” Time Out

Books of the Year, The Scotsman, Alexander McCall's choice

Review

`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.'
