Doctors can now pretend to be Sherlock Holmes

A fun (!?) little book on Evidence-Based Medicine, “Evidence-Based Medicine in Sherlock Holmes’ Footsteps” by Jorgen Nordenstrom. Flicking through the first few pages accessible in the “open book” functionality it looks like a fairly normal but readable (and refreshingly short) book on EBM (you know, formulating a question, doing a search, appraising the evidence and applying to practice), just with a few nice pics from Sherlock Holmes novels and a rather contrived example from The Hound of the Baskervilles. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle studied medicine, don’t you know. He also thought that doctors (would) make good murderers.
