Summary

In this book Tony Robertson exposes the myth that is the efficacy of alternative medicine. Why does the NHS include homeopathy in its prescribable drugs? Why are people allowed to go to malarial countries with the only protection advised by homeopaths being salt tablets? People die, people are not cured, no verifiable efficacy of alternative medicine is produced, and yet homeopathic ‘cures' across the range of ailments and promoted by notable figures such as Prince Charles, continue to be sold.
In Quackery, The 20 Million Dollar Duck, Tony Robertson examines the claims of alternative therapies such as acupuncture: can it really stop smoking addiction, enable surgery to be carried out without anaesthetic, cure hearing loss ...? Unsurprisingly data for ‘miracle' cures and therapies is thin on the ground. For a full exposé of the dangers of ‘quackery' this book is a must.

    The 48 Laws of Power: by Robert Greene | Conversation Starters
    
    In “The 48 Laws of Power”, readers are provided with a fascinating and comprehensive summation of the history of power, spanning thousands of years. Drawing from such well-known philosophy and the teachings of those such as Machiavelli and P.T. Barnum, the novel combines each thread with masterful skill and attention. Each “law” described in the novel is meant to reinforce themes of domination and teach the rules of a dangerous game.
    Robert Greene delivers “The 48 Laws of Power” with striking and powerful assertions, providing readers with the tools to both crush their opponents and defend themselves from the machinations of other power-seeking individuals. A New York Times bestseller, the novel has remained a hit since its publication and continues to enrapture audiences today.
