Subtitled: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients.
In Bad Pharma, just as he did in Bad Science, Ben Goldacre proves more than capable of making science accessible to non-science minded people like me. I do some work in the health care field, on a clinical level, but my ability to interpret research for myself isn’t as developed as I’d like it to be. I felt like I learned a lot about critical analysis, and finally I understand Relative Risk and the Confidence Interval. More than that, I’m absolutely horrified at the manipulations that go on behind the scenes in drug research.
