Product description

Review

“Caulfield … is no scaremongering skeptic: His cure for the mess we’re in is this lucid and well-researched compendium of the best-available science …. Insightful and entertaining…. The author is waging a noble battle against a mountain of misinformation. Gently and with humour, Caulfield guides readers through the funhouse world of health sciences with an openness and spirit of inquiry” - National Post

“Though [Caulfield] may write with the cheerful self-deprecation of the slacker dude, he thinks with an academic’s rigor and precision and knows the health maintenance territory inside out.” - The New York Times

“An entertaining and thought-provoking exposé of many of the beliefs that some of us hold dear…. [Caulfield’s] writing is clear and often amusing…. A good read that may change the way you view your daily latte or stroll around the track at the gym.” - Winnipeg Free Press

“A humorous love letter to science … Caulfield’s writing makes science fun. His cure for just about everything that ails us is insightful and … it’s entertaining. He offers simple, evidence-based information that’s far, far away from the magical thinking that goes with bogus health claims…. For a healthy dose of skepticism concerning the twisted messages, read this book.” - The Gazette (Montreal)

“Insightful.” - Maclean’s

“Entertaining and thought-provoking slam at Big Food, Big Pharma, and our own delusions…. Caulfield’s often hilarious, always fascinating journey unearths a few simple truths.” - Publishers Weekly
