Here is a letter I received regarding my latest book Medical Myths Doctors Believe.
Dear Dr Anchors,
I've just finished reading your excellent book 'Medical Myths ... Doctors Believe'. As a Doctor of Mathematics and some-time practitioner of Statistics, as well as a firm defender of the scientific method and stauch proponent of skepticism it was deeply encouraging and enjoyable to see my values shared and propogated by a physician (albeit a PhD-trained one); indeed such is the value of the book in promulgating the importance of rigorous, skeptical scientific judgement as applied to the multitude of claims, counter-claims and sub-standard studies which are rife in the field of medicine that I would stongly back its use as a core text during the undergraduate education of medical students.
Anyway, the book was a pleasure to read and I look forward to another volume, perhaps with co-authors remedying some of the necessary omissions discussed in the 'Apologies' section of the book.
John Smith (name changed)
