"A little bit of this, nothing on that"
The author goes very deep into some topics while completely omitting many more significant historical events. Randomness comes to mind when choosing to topics for the book. Nevertheless, I occasionally find fascinating bits of new information.
"Enlightening and entertaining"
The author explains how science works and evenhandedly and brilliantly exposes many who profit from scamming people through bad science, from alternative medicine quacks to big pharma advertisement excesses and from bad science reporting in the media to fake scientists. I wonder how much money and lives would be saved if everybody on this planet read Bad Science.
"Interesting yet technical at times"
Apparently the life of Alan Turing wasn't so special after all. Nevertheless, this is an interesting listen even though it gets very technical a couple of times. The reader was enjoyable to listen to most of the time, but his young Alan Turing voice sounds annoyingly innocent.
