From Library Journal: Skrabanek, a Dublin endocrine oncologist, and McCormick, president of the Irish College of General Practitioners, have written "an ordinary person's guide to the limitations of medicine." Examples of medical follies and fallacies included derive from their teaching of "critical appraisal" to students, in which they advocate the need to examine the nature of error within the medical sciences. Erroneous reasoning, fallacious arguments, misconceptions, and faulty logic are explored concerning: placebos, logic and statistics, diagnosis and labeling, preventative medicine, alternative medicine, and aspects of the sociology and morality of medical practice. This is a witty and informative guide that will assist both lay and professional readers to better interpret medical data, practice, and procedures. Recommended.
