Today’s Health Issues
We are constantly bombarded with health advice yet how do we sort fact from fiction, myths from hard science? The Little Book of Shocking Health Facts sets out to right this by presenting a selection of important facts from some of the world’s most authoritative sources and latest scientific studies, so as to give you the real low-down on what is good for you and what is not.
Sorting Fact from Fiction
Presented in concert with striking photographic imagery by Daniel Eatock, one of the world’s leading graphic designers, the book’s content takes a wide-ranging view of the health industry, including its follies, scandals and shocking inequalities. The editor of this small but factually potent publication, Sarah Purcell, is a highly respected health writer and winner of numerous journalism awards.
Sarah Purcell studied English and French at the University of Leeds before training as a journalist. Since then, she has worked as a freelance health and beauty writer contributing to among others; Marie Claire, Top Santé, Prima, Bella, Woman, Woman’s Own, Mother & Baby and Practical Parenting. She has won two Neutrogena Beauty Journalism Awards and has also been twice
named as runner-up in the Johnson & Johnson Beauty Journalism Awards.
Daniel Eatock studied at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication, and at the Royal College of Art, London. After an internship at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, he returned to
England in 1999 and has since worked for various high-profile clients including the Serpentine Gallery and Channel Four Television, most notably creating the eye-catching graphics for the “Big Brother” television series. Conceptual art has consistently inspired Eatock’s graphic work and has led him to become one of the most exciting visual communicators of his generation.
