23 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 1,536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We like to imagine that medicine is based on evidence and the results of fair testing and clinical trials. In reality, those tests and trials?are often profoundly flawed.

But Ben Goldacre shows that the true scale of this murderous disaster fully reveals itself only when the details are untangled. He believes we should all be able to understand precisely how data manipulation works and how research misconduct in the medical industry affects us on a global scale. ???? With Goldacre?s characteristic flair and a forensic attention to detail, Bad Pharma
