Book learning #77. Science tales by Darryl Cunningham

I love the graphic form. Still do. All these years after Tintin, Asterix, Maus. 
I have spent the last two days zipping through this thought provoking text  with it's basic graphics as it illuminated a few key scams/lies/hoaxes from modern science.

The key thing I came away with? 
If my kids or wife were deathly ill, would I trust homeopathy or scientific medicine?
I've dabbled in homeopathy and it made sense at the time, well I went along with it at the time. I really enjoyed the sessions and the calm nature of the practitioner. It was indeed, more psychotherapy than anything medicinal.
