Reviews

  • 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.
