Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. The book discusses the systemic problem of irreproducibility in biomedical research and how it can mislead laymen, journalists, and scientists alike. Although the causes are multifaceted (e.g. publish or perish, etc.), the author offers some sound suggestions on how to correct the problem. For someone getting their PhD in the biomedical field, I found the book excellent so much so that I plan to suggest to our Dean that it should be required reading.
What other book might you compare Rigor Mortis to and why?
“Pandora's Lab” by Paul Offit. Dr. Offit discusses how hope combined with shallow research can take society in deadly directions.
Have you listened to any of Joe Delafield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but we was easy to listen to.
most medical research is bs. the studies are poor and often wrong. the dishonest is so pervasive it is mind boggling. this is not just limited to research, but pervades medicine in general. as an outsider it is possible to see that problems exist, but not the true nature or extent of the problem. this book gives the reader an understanding of the dimension of the problem and it’s cause. a really great book.
