Bad Science Book Summary/Review:

We are constantly bombarded with inaccurate, contradictory and sometimes misleading information-until now. Ben Goldacre masterfully dismantles the dubious science behind some of the great drug trials, court cases and missed opportunities of our time. He also shows us the fascinating story of how we know what we know, and gives us the tools to uncover bad science for ourselves.
