Theodore Dalrymple

Author of False Positives 

 

False Positive Takes New England Journal of Medicine to Task. The New England Journal of Medicine is one of the most respected and important medical journals in the world. But is the trust it’s received from the medical community and the media truly warranted? Retired British psychiatrist Theodore Dalrymple turned a critical eye on NEJM for a full year and found a long list of dubious premises, outright mistakes, and a dangerous culture of political correctness that left much unsaid, which he summarized in the riveting new exposé False Positive—A Year of Error, Omission, and Political Correctness in the New England Journal of Medicine (Encounter Books, June 25, 2019). Cover According to Dalrymple, many of the papers published in NEJM reach conclusions that are obviously flawed. False Positive exposes errors of reasoning and conspicuous omissions apparently undetected by the editors. In some cases, there’s reason to suspect serious conflicts of interest and corruption. Buyer Beware! Dalrymple encourages readers to take a constructively critical view of medical news and to be wary of the latest medical doctrines.

Theodore Dalrymple was born in London in 1949. He retired as a full-time doctor in 2005. He is the author of many books, notably Life at the Bottom (Ivan Dee) and Romancing Opiates (Encounter), which challenges the notion that heroin addiction is a bona fide disease.
