    Thank you for your book – recommended by Ben Goldacre.
    Being unemployed at present I can’t afford to buy a hardcopy yet, but I will add the title to my list of books to buy.
    Keep up the good work, I am an advocate of evidence-based medicine and evidence-based management.

    I just don’t get the alternative – folklore and wishful thinking seem to be too unreliable to me.

    Thanks.

    Awesome. I only hope our “medical professionals” will reccommend this book to the people we all “care for” and the people we “dare for” because we and they, need to know, and all of us need to know what drives our “belief system.” We cannot make positive change without understanding and I submit we might need to change before we ever understand. I think this book will be accepted and support that change. Moreover, I hope this book makes us all think critically. Not something most of our systems support, sorry to say.

    Ben Goldacre says:

    “This book should be in every school, and every medical waiting room. Until then, it’s in your hands. Read on.”

    I’ve quoted from TT at length during my postgrad Clin Research coursework this year. To resounding, disapproving silence – the ideas are still ahead of their time.
