Product description


'An exceptionally strong polemic - one that might even persuade Miley Cyrus to start eating wheat again' Sunday Business Post. 'What makes this book a delightful, if unsettling read, is not just O'Mahony's scholarly and witty prose, but also his brutal honesty ... [He] is a wise consultant towards the end of his career telling us what he wished he had known at the beginning' The Times. 'A deeply fascinating and rousing book' Mail on Sunday.

About the Author

Seamus O'Mahony spent many years working for the National Health Service in Britain. He now lives and practises medicine in his native Cork, in the south of Ireland. His acclaimed first book, The Way We Die Now, was published in 2016, and has been translated into Swedish and Japanese. It won a BMA Book Award in 2017.
