A book I’d like for Christmas: “Bad Science”, by Ben Goldacre. From the Amazon preview:
"Have you ever wondered how one day the media can assert that alcohol is bad for us and the next unashamedly run a story touting the benefits of daily alcohol consumption? Or how a drug that is pulled off the market for causing heart attacks ever got approved in the first place? How can average readers, who aren’t medical doctors or Ph.D.s in biochemistry, tell what they should be paying attention to and what’s, well, just more bullshit?.......". More here.... Buy it for me and, don’t worry, if I get several copies I can use the extra ones as gifts.

  1. A 'win' for Brett! Or is it a tie with Kym?

  2. According to Brett, a win. But that's only Brett's side of the story. I shall interrogate Kym come Monday.
