Product Details


“This is a much needed book — especially now.”—NPR

“After spending years compiling a list of 50 of the world’s worst inventions, [Offit] conducted his own sad version of March Madness to whittle it down to just a handful of finalists…all have proved to be disastrous for human health.”—The Washington Post

“A fascinating and sometimes shocking look at how science can sometimes lead to disaster.” 

“In warning the public of pseudoscientific danger, Offit urges the public to examine available data; beware of quick fixes, fads, and charismatic health gurus; and understand that every advance comes at a price.” —Publishers Weekly

“Another rousing, pull-no-punches piece from a physician set on educating the public about the fallibility of scientists.” —Kirkus Reviews
