'Masterfully, and humorously . provides much needed sanity in a world of claims run amok . I devoured it' - Daniel Levitin, author of The Organized Mind
Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? Do I really have to floss? Are office meetings actually worth the time they take up? Am I spending enough time with my children? Should I worry about binge-watching TV? What time should I go to bed?

We make, and worry about, a thousand big and little decisions during our waking hours. Too often these decisions are dictated by concerns or beliefs about our world that simply aren't true.

With precision and wit, award-winning public health expert Timothy Caulfield analyses the innumerable cultural, social and psychological forces that shape these misperceptions. Caulfield provides a scientifically informed way out of this mess - Relax will do exactly what the title suggests and help put your mind at ease.
