"Perhaps you, like me, find yourself bewildered by conflicting claims about everything from the food you should eat, to the 'five second rule' if that food falls on the floor, to whether public toilet seats pass along terrifying diseases. Tim Caulfield masterfully, and humorously, walks you through all of the things you're likely to encounter in a typical day and provides such much needed sanity in a world of claims run amok. It also serves as an introduction to critical thinking for those who don't know how to approach such questions, enabling all of us to make better sense of any new nonsense that comes forward. I devoured it (and it didn't even fall on the floor)."

"In Your Day, Your Way Tim Caulfield gives us an entertaining guide to some of the most entrenched as well as the more recent wellness fads. No one understands the impact of pop culture on health communication better than Caulfield, who is an expert in the marketing of health misinformation and disinformation. He is an entertaining science communicator who understands that fear is a big driver of our headline-driven 24/7 news cycle. Every day we are met with headlines-which often contradict the ones from the previous week-as to how we should be living our lives.Caulfield tackles this confusing clickbait by walking the reader through an imaginary day. His style of communication is effective and easy to understand. And I learned a lot! Read this book-it will vaccinate you against misinformation!"
