Product description

Review

"Delightfully horrifying." (Popular Science)

"A delightful romp through a myriad of entertaining, arcane and obscure medical anecdotes. Fascinating and entertaining... a curious window into a vitalistic era of medical practice." (Adrian Woolfson Wall Street Journal)

"A witty account of bizarre medical tales from history. Read it, weep and be very grateful for modern medicine." (Daily Express)

"Blending fascinating history with cutting wit, surgical historian Thomas Morris mines the medical journals and explores some of the strangest cases that have perplexed doctors across the world." (Big Issue)

"A Ripley-esque collection of 'compellingly disgusting, hilarious, or downright bizarre' medical oddities... accompanied by the author's witty and often humorous, colloquial commentary." (Kirkus Reviews)

Book Description

Horrible histories for adults, these gruesome, bizarre and often hilarious medical case histories trace the evolution of modern medicine and the astonishing resilience of human life, both in body and spirit!
