    In today's information age, medical myths are all around us. And using them to make decisions about your own health can be harmful. Even deadly. That's why it's critical to understand the accuracy of medical information and discover the truth about everyday health and well-being. That's the core of this important series of 24 eye-opening lectures from an acclaimed neurologist, educator, and science broadcaster.

    Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Steven Novella?

    I really enjoyed the professors tone, it was effortless to follow along with and engaging. I was disappointed with the lack of evidence given for the claims. The professor did a great job at explaining the main points but gave little mention of the specific studies or scientific literature behind them. I was hoping to leave the course with some working knowledge of what makes certain claims mythical rather than just understanding what the myths are.


    Has Medical Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths: What We Think We Know May Be Hurting Us turned you off from other books in this genre?
