Ben Goldacre: I Think You'll Find it's a Bit More Complicated Than That
Join vanquisher of misinformation and self-confessed 'nerd evangelist' Ben Goldacre as he leads you through his latest book, I Think You'll Find it's a Bit More Complicated Than That - a new collection of the best journalistic articles from the author of Bad Science and Bad Pharma.
In his Guardian column Bad Science, which led to his bestselling 2008 book of the same name, Goldacre sought to expose inaccuracy after inaccuracy in the overlapping worlds of science, medicine and the media: bogus doctors, alternative therapies and the marketing agendas that often underlie their claims took the full force of his passion to debunk. His follow-up 2012 Bad Pharma - in which he took on the myths of the multi-billion pound pharmaceutical industry - triggered two parliamentary inquiries and helped get the EU law on hidden data changed.
Brave, enthralling and often hilarious, Goldacre's award-winning writing is now collected in I Think You'll Find It's a Bit More Complicated Than That and he'll be on stage explaining exactly how and why. Come and hear this captivating doctor, academic and broadcaster as he slays more wilful misconceptions and argues for the importance of knowing what's really going on.
