Publisher's Summary

Life today for citizens of the developed world is safer, easier, and healthier than for any other people in history thanks to modern medicine, science, technology, and intelligence. So why is an epidemic of fear sweeping America? The answer, according to nationally renowned health commentator Dr. Marc Siegel, is that we live in an artificially created culture of fear. In False Alarm, Siegel identifies three major catalysts of the culture of fear - government, the media, and big pharma. 

With fascinating blow-by-blow analyses of the most sensational false alarms of the past few years, he shows how these fearmongers manipulate our most primitive instincts - often without our even realizing it. False Alarm shows us how to look behind the hype and hysteria, inoculate ourselves against fear tactics, and develop the emotional and intellectual skills needed to take back our lives.

Excellent book! So many parallels with COVID-19.

This is an excellent book by Dr. Marc Siegel.

Although published in 2005, there are so many parallels with the current COVID-19 situation...which has essentially proven to be a "False Alarm” and was morphed into its' own "epidemic of fear".

debunk pre-covid19 virus hysteria events

great listen by a Manhattan doctor exposing the fear epidemics caused by WHO and CDC. Sadly poorly read.

Prescient topic for 2020, poor performance.

I will have to buy the book to get into the content that I believe may have some value in these days of 2020 because I couldn't get through 5 minutes of the narration. I'm sorry to say the performance lacked flow, felt like a first time tele-prompter reader and sounded mildly constipated. I might circle back to try to get through it...maybe.

More relevant than ever

It’s 2020 and this book is just as prescient now as it was 15 years ago.

Very informative book

Narration stiff at first but softens up by end of first chapter. Stick with it, the content is excellent.
