My articles published in the Monday Medical Myth series on The Conversation were included in a paperback and e-book publication, “99 & Counting: Medical Myths Debunked”, edited by Helen Sykes & Fron Jackson-Webb.
This series of articles was brainchild of Fron, who engaged with field experts to write on a commonly believed myth, explain where it might have originated, and to debunk it with evidence.
The book is divided into 10 parts – each section having a different flavour and style of writing. The historical context of my experiences links the separate sections together.
This book is available as a free PDF eBook, published and available through Lulu.
A hardcover with dust-jacket edition is also available.

“The Creation of The Medicine Box” is a comprehensive documentation of the design, goals, development and construction of the website, The Medicine Box. It contains a review and analysis of the state of the project after six months from its launch in April 2006.
This report was in addition written and designed as a guidebook to the development of online medical education resources. “The Medicine Box” represents a significant body of work. We hope that you find both this book and the website worthwhile.
