Tough on bullshit. Tough on the causes of bullshit.

Never before have we had so much information available to us about food and health. There's GAPS, paleo, detox, gluten-free, alkaline, the sugar conspiracy, clean eating.. Unfortunately, a lot of it is not only wrong but actually harmful. So why do so many of us believe this bad science?

Assembling a crack team of psychiatrists, behavioural economists, food scientists and dietitians, the Angry Chef unravels the mystery of why sensible, intelligent people are so easily taken in by the latest food fads, making brief detours for an expletive-laden rant. At the end of it all you'll have the tools to spot pseudoscience for yourself and the Angry Chef will be off for a nice cup of tea - and it will have two sugars in it, thank you very much.
From eating the right meals to buying a utility product, from finding a good educational institution to investing money in an asset - everyone has numerous decisions to make in their lives. But not everyone ends up making the best choice for themselves. Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth and Happiness from Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein focusses on providing direction to readers, so that they are able to pick the best choices

A diet that allows red wine, chocolate and the most delicious Italian food you can imagine? The Pioppi Plan offers just that, but so much more - lose weight, de-stress and live healthier and longer with this revolutionary new programme. Pioppi itself, a small Italian village which is home to the healthiest, longest-living people in the world, offers secrets that have never before been shared: until now.

Based on five years of research and drawing on over 100 studies on Pioppi, Dr Aseem Malhotra, a trained cardiologist, has created a plan which is designed to provide readers with the joy and wellbeing of a Mediterranean lifestyle by making small 'marginal gains' over a 21-day period. Each little change the book encourages you to make will add up to weight lost and years gained, across eight key areas: diet, movement, sleep, stress management, sunshine, exercise, posture and social interaction. This isn't a diet or lifestyle which requires saying 'no' to the things you love, nor exercising for hours upon end, but rather making simple, achievable and long-lasting changes.

In our search for truth, how far have we advanced? This uniquely human quest for good explanations has driven amazing improvements in everything from scientific understanding and technology to politics, moral values and human welfare. But will progress end, either in catastrophe or completion - or will it continue indefinitely? In this profound and seminal book, David Deutsch explores the furthest reaches of our current understanding, taking in the Infinity Hotel, supernovae and the nature of optimism, to instill in all of us a wonder at what we have achieved - and the fact that this is only the beginning of humanity's infinite possibility.
