London Thinks - Ben Goldacre: I Think You'll Find It's a Bit More Complicated Than That!

Dr Ben Goldacre on bad journlism and the pitfalls of science reporting.


The very best journalism from one of Britain’s most admired and outspoken science writers, author of the bestselling "Bad Science" and "Bad Pharma" and his new book "I Think You'll Find It's a Bit More Complicated Than That" - which is now an Amazon No.1 Bestseller.
In ‘Bad Science’, Ben Goldacre hilariously exposed the tricks that quacks and journalists use to distort science. In ‘Bad Pharma’, he put the $600 billion global pharmaceutical industry under the microscope. Now the pick of the journalism by one of our wittiest, most indignant and most fearless commentators on the worlds of medicine and science is collected in one volume.
Dr. Ben Goldacre is a best-selling author, broadcaster, campaigner, medical doctor and academic who specialises in unpicking the misuse of science and statistics by journalists, politicians, quacks, drug companies, and more.
His first book “Bad Science” (4th Estate) has sold over 500,000 copies to date, is published in 18 countries, and reached number one in the UK non-fiction bestseller charts. Bad Pharma, is on bad behaviour in the pharmaceutical industry and medicine more broadly, and I Think You'll Find It's a Bit More Complicated Than That! is about the complex world of bad journalism: it is now a top ten UK best seller.
Ben's books will be available to buy on the night.
Complimentary wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be available on the night too.
Tickets £15/£5 concessions and Conway Hall Ethical Society Members.
