Bad ScienceBad Science by Ben Goldacre
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not the best writing I have seen (the book is mostly written as a continuous rant), but the content is immensely important and should be compulsory reading for all high school students. Goldacre not only exposes bad science, but also shows its devastating effects. “Bullshit has become an extremely important public health issue,” as he so eloquently puts it. Most of all, it proves that the media needs more science journalists and better training for regular hacks.
