The reader will find a wealth of material to browse in this Oxford Dictionary; it should charm and amuse, and also provide material for use in speeches or articles for publication. * British Journal of Anaesthesia *
This incisive, rather punchy little book is packed with such quotes, making a highly engaging read... This book has its rightful place - within easy reach - on the bookshelves of all health professionals and social commentators. It will add colour, depth and a sense of place in history to your thought processes, presentations and eventual quotes of your own. * Palliative Medicine *
This is a wonderfully stimulating and entertaining collection of quotations covering all aspects of medicine, from antiquity to the present. You can browse, reflect, smile, and even laugh out loud... Wonderful holiday reading! * IAHPC Website *
Absolutely fascinating... It is impossible to open this book at any page without finding something that will interest or entertain you... The rich and famous are certainly well represented in compilation and quite rightly so. Then there are real gems, including those from the most unlikely sources... This book is a little treasure. * The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists *
It's no laughing matter going to the doctor but at least this collection of cracking quotes can make the visit more bearable. * Northern Echo *
If you wish to pepper a presentation or if you enjoy writing... then you will find much in this volume to quote. I haven't counted them in detail, but I estimate there are in excess of 1500 quotations arranged in two ways: by author and by subject. This makes it very easy to locate a particular quotation, and as the title indicates they are all concerned in one way or another with various aspects of medicine... This is an excellent book to have beside you when writing an article or preparing a lecture. The selection is scholarly and the presentation excellent. * Dr Alan Emery *
