Doch mit welchem Ergebnis? Woher wissen wir, ob uns eine medizinische Behandlung hilft? Wie können wir überprüfen, was uns alternative Heilmethoden wie zum Beispiel die Homöopathie versprechen? Und warum glauben kluge, kritische Menschen hanebüchene Dinge, nur weil »die Wissenschaft« sie angeblich bewiesen hat? Ben Goldacre entlarvt mit so viel Witz wie Wissen die zweifelhafte Wissenschaft hinter vermeintlich geprüften und bewiesenen Fakten und zeigt uns, wie wir mit eigenen Mitteln schlechte von guter Wissenschaft unterscheiden können.

Julian Tresloves Leben ist ein Scherbenhaufen. Gescheitert als Redakteur der BBC, gescheitert in seinen Beziehungen zu Frauen, gescheitert als Vater seiner zwei Söhne. Eines Abends wird Treslove Opfer eines Überfalls und glaubt zu hören, wie die Angreiferin ihn als Juden beschimpft – und ist auf perverse Art glücklich. Endlich gehört er irgendwo dazu. Was nur werden seine beiden Freunde zu diesem Gesinnungswandel sagen? Beide sind Juden und wären es lieber nicht ... Von Männerfreundschaft, Liebe, Sex, Tod, und was es bedeutet, jüdisch zu sein – sprachlich raffiniert nimmt Howard Jacobson die Obsessionen unserer Zeit ins Visier und hat mit „Die Finkler-Frage” einen beißend-klugen und dabei hochkomischen Gegenwartsroman geschrieben.
