Malcolm Kendrick is a Scottish doctor and author of The Great Cholesterol Con (2008) and Doctoring Data (2014). He graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 1981, has been a general practitioner for over 25 years, and has worked with the European Society of Cardiology.
The Great Cholesterol Con documents what the author perceived as the misguided use of statins in primary care. Doctoring Data deals with a wide range of subjects related to the use and misuse of medical statistics. The aim of the book is to give the reader the basic statistical tools and understanding needed to distinguish between sound medical advice and scaremongering headlines.
