Description: For the first time in trade paperback comes this extraordinary successful and wonderfully humorous history of medicine

Delightfully witty and richly informative, this book by the author of the classic Doctor in the House is a collection of anecdotes describing how the historical breakthroughs in medicine were really made. Using hilarious stories, based on actual facts, Gordon shows that most monumental discoveries were originally accidents.

A must for hypochondriacs, doctors, medical students, and anyone fascinated by the world of medicine, The Alarming History of Medicine is clever, revealing -- and all true.

"(An) instructive, entertaining lode of superstitions and facts". -- Publishers Weekly

"Gordon deals wittily and informatively with the past as well as the present in this set of anecdotes on some of medicine's great achievements and achievers". -- Booklist

"A book that knows both the medical profession and the human funny bone". -- Hartford Courant
