We are constantly bombarded with inaccurate, contradictory and sometimes misleading information - until now.

Great book, better in hard copy

This fascinating and persuasive book will give you loads of fodder for heated dinner party conversations. But I recommend that you buy the hard copy rather, for two reasons:
- the delivery of the narrator is excessively vehement, overbearing and forceful which doesn't match the tone the book is written in, and makes for painful listening, and
- it's the kind of book that you want to refer back to to verify a statistic or clarify a point, which is one of the rare occasions when I'd rather have a paper book than an audio book.

Having said that, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. It's just that I'll be buying several hard copies for myself and for general dishing out.

important topic, chaotic drama, worst narrator

What did you like best about Bad Science? What did you like least?

The topic is important and the autor competent. The narrator wants to act, but he is the worst actor: tries to mock voices and exagerates the tones.

What did you like best about this story?

This is a comprehensive black book of the health and beauty industry. Not that it shows every single case but it rehears most of the mechanisms

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rupert Farley?


Did Bad Science inspire you to do anything?

I will eat more vegetables and fruits and no vitamine pilles, because its the only real thing
