Named by Amazon as one of the "Best Nonfiction Books of the Month" "A rewarding read for anyone who wants to know the unvarnished truth about how science really gets done." ?Financial Times American taxpayers spend $30 billion annually funding biomedical research, but over half of these studies can't be replicated due to poor experimental design, improper methods, and sloppy statistics. Bad science doesn't just hold back medical progress, it can sign the equivalent of a death sentence for terminal patients. In Rigor Mortis , Richard Harris explores these urgent issues with vivid anecdotes, personal stories, and interviews with the top biomedical researchers. We need to fix our dysfunctional biomedical system?before it's too late. " Rigor Mortis effectively illustrates what can happen when a convergence of social, cultural, and scientific forces . . . conspires to create a real crisis of confidence in the research process." ?Science "Harris makes a strong case that the biomedical research culture is seriously in need of repair." ?Nature
