The Brits Pull No Punches On Fake Medicine!!
I will listen again, just because there was so much in it that I can't remember every detail all at once. FABULOUS information and take!
I loved this book! Of course, the fact that the author agreed with me on the pseudoscience of many alternative medicine certainly didn't hurt, but it was more than that. He came and things as a nonbeliever in everything, whether it be alternative medicine or science, whether it be medicine or placebo. Furthermore, he was able to say that “yes, some things that are not scientifically proved actually have proved helpful, MORE than doing nothing”. He did his best to explain what could be going on, and he did his best to allow for individuals' belief systems. In some cases, he said that he doesn't agree with you, but he respects your choice. I personally, furthermore, learned things about what I, personally, need to look for. It was a great book!
