'This is an heretical book. The scared cows of health promotion are dispatched with greater zeal than that with which the British beef herd was slaughtered at the height of the BSE crisis.' - Dr David Wainwright, International Epidemiology
'A thrilling account of the problems encountered by doctors in present-day medical practice and is highly recommended to be read also by nurses.' - Nursing Ethics 2003, 10 (3) Book Description
