THE SAWBONES BOOK: The Horrifying, Hilarious Road to Modern Medicine
The authors share bizarre highlights from the history of medicine, answering questions such as: How can I rob graves the old fashioned way? Opium, is there anything it can't cure? Can I lose weight by swallowing a tape worm? How likely am I to spontaneously burst into flames? Does chocolate have medicinal properties? Plus other absurdities. Well illustrated, some in color.
