Pre-review of a book against pseudoscience alternative medicine

Trick or Treatment: The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine - Simon Singh, Edzard Ernst

Why the sudden interest?

Well, Simon Singh was sued by British Chiropractic Association over an article he wrote in the Guardian newspaper in 2008 about chiropractic treatments.
