really liked it

Good, entertaining book. And given what I am going to save now that I stop buying omega-3 capsules for the kids, one of the best investments I've made.

The down-side is that it is very British. Goldacre ripped into British personages (McKeith) whom I had never heard of, and English news (Durham fish-oil trial, MSRA scare) which similarly were new to me. A lot of it was really criticism of the British press, which wasn't too relevant to me.

The new chapter on Rath, and the handling of HIV in South Africa hit far closer to home, showing that bad science isn't just a way of freeing suckers of their money (omega-3), it can be murderous.
