James Hamblin, a doctor-turned-journalist and creator of a series of videos at TheAtlantic.com, brings his offbeat wit to such timeless questions as: How much sleep do you really need? Do we really not yet know if cellphones cause cancer? Is it possible to boost the immune system? Will caffeine really make me live longer? Underneath the curiosity factor and his nerdy charm, Hamblin conveys useful information. That’s a win-win for everyone.
