"This compilation...deserves the widest possible readership within and beyond the medical community. As a pioneer in neonatology and controlled clinical trials, the author brings unparalleled experience to these pieces....The essays are pithy, scholarly, lucid, iconoclastic, and suffused with the author's humanity and humor."--Rob Schechter, Amazon
"[Silverman] encourages us to respond by questioning the evidence that informs our decisions, by distinguishing between the values we need when acquiring knowledge and those we need when applying it, and by recognizing that all medical previleges are granted to us by our patients. This book...offers succour to those of us who fear that most of the world's troubles are caused by people who have the courage of their convictions and yearn to hear from those like Silverman who have the courage of their doubts."--British Journal of General Practice
"This is an extraordinary book....[these] essays should be savored, dipped into and returned to rather than read consecutively from cover to cover, thought about, argued with, and reread."--The New England Journal of Medicine
"We can only be grateful that the distilled wisdom of a great man is at least in part encapsulated within 200 pages of highly readable prose....a unique collation of topics that are always thought provoking,usually challenging and sometimes downright aggravating."--Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology
"Where's the evidence? is a collection of 45 short, thoughtful and challenging essays in which Silverman continues to hold up a mirror to medical practitioners."--Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London
