Ben Goldacre’s wise and witty bestseller, shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize, lifts the lid on quack doctors, flaky statistics, scaremongering journalists and evil pharmaceutical corporations.

On this eye-opening book he’s taking at the MMR hoax and misleading cosmetics ads, acupuncture and homeopathy, vitamins and mankind’s vexed relationship with all manner of ‘toxins’. Along the best way, the self-confessed ‘Johnny Ball cum Witchfinder General’ performs a a success detox on a Barbie doll, sees his dead cat grow to be a licensed nutritionist and probes the supposed medical qualifications of ‘Dr’ Gillian McKeith.

Full spleen and satire, Ben Goldacre takes us on a hilarious, invigorating and in the end alarming journey in the course of the bad science we are fed day by day by hacks and quacks.
