I love how he writes:

"I’m going to tell you how medicine works, just over the page, in one paragraph that will seem so absurd – so ludicrously appalling – that when you read it, you’ll probably assume I’m exaggerating. ...

So to be clear, this whole book is about meticulously defending every assertion in the paragraph that follows."
