Did your mother remind you to take off your coat when inside or you won’t ‘feel the benefit’ when you leave?

Have you ever been informed that what you need to cool down is a nice cup of tea?

And are you bored of being told that you have to let that red wine breathe first to improve its taste?

If so then Deceived Wisdom is the book for you. Organised into easy-to-read standalone sections, it looks at the facts we all think we know and examines why we don’t know them at all. David Bradley’s clear and witty writing examines the science behind the statements to reveal the truth behind many popular myths.

Reviews from Amazon:
Having first read the Extended Sampler, I now have in my possession the hardback copy of 'Deceived Wisdom' by David Bradley, Science Writer, and it certainly lives up to its description. To both scientists and non-scientists alike, it demystifies those old wives' tales and urban myths, as described, in a scientific and logical manner. Being of retirement age, I encountered many of those myths myself but all ages, from 10 to 100+, will be captivated by his scientific analysis. The hardback copy is beautifully presented in 166 pages and does what it says on the cover. At the end of each topic covered is 'The Science' behind it and a 'Find out more' link reference. On page 156 he quotes Carl Sagan 'There are no forbidden questions in science, no matters too sensitive or delicate to be probed, no sacred truths'. This beautiful quotation really sums up what is in this book and I certainly recommend it to all.
'At last, a book that blows away many of the urban myths that we've come to accept without questioning. Well written and engrossing' -- --Dr John Emsley, author of 'Nature's Building Blocks' and other popular science books

'Let it be announced from the rooftops that David Bradley has compiled this charming book, Deceived Wisdom, showing that some of the popular Old Wives Tales and things you could have sworn were true because you heard them down the pub are, with the appliance of science, just another charabanc of retired shoe manufacturers ... Good things come in small packages, and I read it in a single session. It's a book you can dip into, one of those things that no well-stocked shelf in the Smallest Room should be without ... if you want a stocking-filler for the geek in your life, especially if they are teenagers and might not have come across these before, then this has to be it.'.
