Bad Science by Ben Goldacre

I’ve just finished reading “Bad Science” by Ben Goldacre. A very clearly written and entertaining book that give a fascinating insight into the methods of bad science, and, what I found particularly bleak, the fundamental reasons why the media will consistently mis-report the scientific breakthrough story.

It really reminded me of the Mark Twain quote: “If you don’t read newspapers you are uninformed. If you do read newspapers you’re misinformed.”
