Reviews

From the review of `I Think You'll Find It's More Complicated Than That':

`In a busy world where most of us believe what we're told, the science writer Goldacre looks behind the quackery. "Science is squabble," he says ... In short, everything you take at face value is wrong. Maybe even this review: now read Ben.' The Times

From the reviews of `Bad Science':

`For sheer savagery, the illusion-destroying, joyous attack on the self-regarding, know-nothing orthodoxies of the modern middle classes, "Bad Science" can not be beaten. You'll laugh your head off, then throw all those expensive health foods in the bin.' Trevor Philips, Observer (Book of the Year)

`Unmissable ... enormously enjoyable.' The Times (Book of the Year)

From the reviews of `Bad Pharma':

`This is a book to make you enraged - properly, bone-shakingly furious...A work of brilliance.' Daily Telegraph

`An important book. Ben Goldacre is angry, and by the time you put `Bad Pharma' down, you should be too.' New Statesman
