It's a solid read with a fantastic take-away lesson, and likely deserves a higher rating if one were to read it without background. However, I suspect anybody taking the time to seek it out and read it is coming into the work with a respectable foundation of the issues it addresses.

Well done. I think some of the rave reviews are of the type - "I think YOU could learn a lot from it".

This is a great book. Is a book full of facts, good examples and references. It may not be the kind of "fun to read" that characterizes similar books like the ones of Goldacre, but is indeed a great reference to talk, think and act against bad practices in the health industry.

Excellent overview of issues from patient's perspective as well as of issues within the medical profession relating to testing of treatments and how to encourage learning from mistakes in a systematic way. Recommended if you ever think about health issues/practice.

Something everybody should read, know and understand. It's not complicated and it explains essential concepts in medical research which every patient should know.
