Quackery - A brief history of the worst ways to cure everything
Looking back through history with fascination, horror, and not a little dash of dark, knowing humour, this book recounts the lively and at times unbelievable history of medical misfires and malpractices.
Ranging from the merely weird to the outright dangerous, there are dozens of outlandish, morbidly hilarious “treatments”—conceived by doctors and scientists, by spiritualists and snake oil salesmen.
Great addition to your bookshelf at home....if you can put it down!
