    Dave is the king of plain language debunking. This book eviscerates alternative medicine by teaching the tiniest bit of basic chemistry. Given the title, I wish he'd taken the Organic industry to task a little bit more. It was sort of a short book, there was room for more. Hopefully Dave will write more. One mistake I caught was that, in discussing marijuana, schedule 1 drugs were conflated with "the most addictive" which is not how the classification works. The classification is actually "no cur Dave is the king of plain language debunking. This book eviscerates alternative medicine by teaching the tiniest bit of basic chemistry.

One mistake I caught was that, in discussing marijuana, schedule 1 drugs were conflated with "the most addictive" which is not how the classification works. The classification is actually "no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse" which fit marijuana at the time of its classification into schedule 1. The high potential for abuse is still there. This isn't contradicted by its being less addictive than other substances in the same class.

    I've been a fan of the author for quite some time now, and I jumped on the book as soon as I saw it on Audible. Now that I'm done with it I can gladly say that it was an easy and fun listening experience. The information and entertainment Dave Farina has shared for years online through Youtube is absolutely marvelous, and now much of that has been condensed into this splendid book. This is one of those books that I'll recommend to everyone - simply because it leaves you with much of the knowledg I've been a fan of the author for quite some time now, and I jumped on the book as soon as I saw it on Audible.

    Hard to rate; although I was already aware of most of what he said, it was good information, but I think it went too far into the actual science and biochemistry for the title. It was fairly interesting, but I'm not sure that it was appropriate. I highly recommend it, but maybe under a different title and subtittle , maybe something like "The science and Biochemical methodology for spotting misleading science online". I don't know, maybe that's a little too much, but "A Guide to Spotting Mislead Hard to rate; although I was already aware of most of what he said, it was good information, but I think it went too far into the actual science and biochemistry for the title.
