    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.

    "It's a book to expose lies using selective data."

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It's a book on half truths that uses selective data to prove his hypothesis. It's very disappointing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Some of it is presented with good humor.


    What about Professor Steven Novella’s performance did you like?

    It's fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Reader beware. Steven Novella is basically an advocate for the Pharmaceutical industry. He promotes everything that is promoted by mainstream health practitioners and uses half truths to prove his half truths. He doesn't take a truly open approach. He dismisses the majority of naturopathic medicine and basically promotes the use of most vaccines and drugs despite the obvious and well known side effects.
