Somehow I'd gotten the impression this was going to tie together a lot of pseudo-science ideas and make a big point, make it easier to spot the hoaxes, easier to remember the truths Dr. Joe teaches us... But it's not.  It's a collection of short essays (radio casts?), just the latest in a long list of Dr. Joe's books.  And a long list of similar books I've read.  I honestly can't rate this perfectly objectively because I am kinda burnt out on them.  I do recommend this, or any other book by Schwarcz, or a number of similar books, titles avl on request, for anyone who gets their science from bloggers, Dr. Oz, homeopaths, or 'health food' stores.

In "Monkeys, Myths and Molecules," bestselling author Dr. Joe Schwarcz takes a critical look at how facts are misconstrued in the media. He debunks the myths surrounding canned food, artificial dyes, SPF, homeopathy, cancer, chemicals present in our lives, and much more. Unafraid to expose the sheer nonsense people are led to believe about health, food, drugs, and our environment, Dr. Joe confronts pseudoscience and, convincingly and entertainingly, advocates for a scientific approach to the everyday.… (more)
