Book Recommendation (especially for Luminon): Bad Science
Just a book I've been reading recently that's very good. Not only does it explore and expose the flaws of "alternative medicine" but it also explains why science is so misunderstood by the populace (thank you newspapers) and even takes time to point out the actual evils of pharmaceuticals companies, rather than the ones dreamt up by people defending placebo level "cures".
It's called "Bad Science" and it's by Ben Goldacre, a British doctor and journalist. He's been publishing a column called Bad Science for quite some time now. His website is here http://www.badscience.net/
