It was okay.
No, Not by this author. 30% of what he alleged was a myth was only a myth to a closed-minded Western Institutionally Trained Scientist-Medical Person--typically trained to disavow anything not propagandized as "fact" by Big Pharma....
A lot of good scientific information about neurology and psychology gathered, organized and presented very well.
Exploring Metaphysics - Because it gives the opposite view on much of the same subject matter.
The information of statistics and how we think we see patterns among data points that is actually really falling into the normal realms of "chance."
Novella, while doing a good job in presenting a large amount of information in ways that make learning the information easy, suggests that much of what we believe does not really stand-up to scientific scrutiny. He calls out to us admonishing us to not fall into certain "traps" as we think about different things. Yet, I find him to be just as guilty in his own way of "falling into the same traps" that he lectures us on to avoid.
Yes - lot of significant facts that are needed in research.
The painstaking effort to assemble the historical data and organize it well into s meaningful factline.
Amazed at the intensity of the misguidedness that the US Doctors possessed over the decades and their willingness to succeed their industry to the robber barons.
Although the storyline is a two decades old, it i still valid as "nothing has changed..."
Author was a good story teller...
