Advance Praise for False Alarm

"Marc Siegel is an articulate voice of reason in a world beset by hype and hysteria. We would be well advised to listen closely to what he has to say."
—Jerome Groopman, M.D., staff writer, The New Y

"Marc Siegel is an articulate voice of reason in a world beset by hype and hysteria. We would be well advised to listen closely to what he has to say."
—Jerome Groopman, M.D., staff writer, The New Yorker

"A passionate aria that puts Marc Siegel center stage in the Anti-Hysteria chorus. As both an empathetic doctor and a shrewd observer of popular culture, Siegel updates that 1950s truism: watching TV can be injurious to health . . . especially if you believe the hype about imminent terrorist threats and fearsome potential epidemics. False Alarm is a color-coded burst of sanity amid the fear and frenzy of twenty-first century America."
—Walter Shapiro, author of One-Car Caravan

"A brave, insightful, and ultimately wise exposé of how the government and corporations rev up our fear to lethal levels——d istracting us from our true needs, and the needs of the world. A 'good doctor' indeed."
—Samuel Shem, M.D., author of The House of God

"In this masterful and provocative work, Dr. Marc Siegel, an accomplished physician and author, skillfully dissects our present-day culture of fearmongering.

They all should be scared of this powerful book."
—David Corn, Washington editor of The Nation

—John M. Barry, author of The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague in History

—Bill Press, former cohost of CNN's Crossfire ...Continua
