50 Easy Habits That Help You Live Longer, According to Science

But when reading the whole thing it starts to wear thin. The tone comes across as condescending. There are no references so its hard to ascertain what is opinion and what is scientific fact e. Sounds anecdotal with no data on actual stats about cycling safety on roads. I like concept of this book to disprove a lot I scanned a few pages on bookstore and loved it. I like concept of this book to disprove a lot of rubbish that is out there as fact but I feel it fails in execution. This book is a great disabuser of misinformation, superstition, marketing nonsense and quackery in general.

The explanations given of the research behind the topics covered aren't perhaps as detailed as they could be, for example. This is no more apparent than when the author dismisses renewable fuels as well-meaning but ultimately frivolous and firmly nails his colours to the pro-nuclear lobby. Whether you agree with him or not isn't the point here, what matters is that he does not give one single argument or piece of research to justify his position and instead seems to assume that the logic of his stance should be apparent to all.

This sadly undermines his oft stated position within the book that no claim should be accepted without first examining the evidence behind it, which should ideally be presented by the person making the claim. Otherwise, an enjoyable and helpful read but one which could have benefited by more diligence from its author. Just a stack of stories about the myths and rumours in our everyday life.

A lot of commonplace information. This book is a waste of time. Jun 16, Kirsty rated it liked it.
