Bad Science: buy it, read it, send it to Gillian McKeith for Xmas

Ben Goldacre’s book, Bad Science, is superb fun. It’s not just about the Gillian McKeiths of this world, although of course they’re in there; he’s equally good at giving both barrels to big pharmaceutical companies – companies that, as Goldacre points out, often make the very “alternative” supplements the anti-Big Pharma crowd are always blabbing on about.
