Have you ever wondered how one day the media can assert that alcohol is bad for us and the next unashamedly run a story touting the benefits of daily alcohol consumption? Or how a drug that is pulled off the market for causing heart attacks ever got approved in the first place? How can average readers, who arent medical doctors or Ph.D.s in biochemistry, tell what they should be paying attention to and whats, well, just more nonsense?

Ben Goldacre has made a point of exposing quack doctors and nutritionists, bogus credentialing programs, and biased scientific studies. But he has also taken the media to task for its willingness to throw facts and proof out the window in its quest to sell more copies. Now Goldacre is taking on America and its bad science in this revised version of his runaway U.K. bestseller. But hes not here just to tell you whats wrong. Goldacre is here to teach you how to evaluate placebo effects, double-blind studies, and sample size, so that you can recognize bad science when you see it. Youre about to feel a whole lot better.

Ben Goldacre is exasperated. He's not exactly angrythat would be much less fun to readexcept in certain circumstances. He is irked, vexed, bugged, ticked off at the sometimes inadvertent (because of stupidity) but more often deliberate deceptions perpetrated in the name of science. And he wants you, the reader, to share his feelings[Bad Science is] illustrated with lucid charts and graphs, footnotedindexed and far more serious than it looks. Depending on your point of view, you'll find it downright snarky or wittily readable.

Ben Goldacre is a writer, broadcaster, and doctor best known for the Bad Science column inThe Guardian. Trained in Oxford and London, with brief forays into academia, Goldacre works full-time for the National Health Service.
