Covered here are more than 500 of medicines brilliant achievements, crashing failures, and bizarre oddities, from prehistoric healers to 21st-century HMOs. This compilation of humorous episodes in the history of medicine includes entries such as: ancient Egyptian surgeons put their patients under by hitting them on the head with a mallet; at a Tokyo hospital, 30 percent of patients with throat polyps claimed karaoke was the cause; in the era of bloodletting, George Washingtons doctors turned a mild complaint into a full-blown medical crisis by bleeding their famous patient over and over until he eventually died (the story behind the books title).
