The curator of the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices shares his collection of the hilarious, horrifying and preposterous medical devices that have been foisted upon the public in their quest for good health. The assortment of quack devices, that will at once amaze, entertain, and inform you', (Late Night with David Letterman), includes the Prostate Gland Warmer, Phrenology Machine, Nose Straightener, and Wonder Electro Marvel. With period advertisements, promotional literature and gadget instructions, this book offers a wealth of past - and present - medical fraud.'
