Product Description

Product Description

Having recently frolicked through open-heart surgery and other devious mutilations on his Greek-god physique, fearless William C. Anderson has sharpened his lance and taken on the medical profession.
Scientists have concluded that humor plays a vital role in the recovery of hospital patients. This off-the-wall "How-to" (or "How-not-to") book contains such helpful chapters as "When Not To Grope Your Nurse," "Never Eat Hospital Food That Crawls," "Never Shake Hands With A Proctologist," and "Should You Have Sex During Surgery?"
Sooner or later all of us will face the foreboding portals of a hospital ward. This small but mighty tome will guide you through them with a stiff upper lip and a song in your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute MUST for every hospital patient. 11 May 1998
By A Customer - Published on
I read the review of this book in the New York Times, and knew it was a necessity for an upcoming surgery. The "Times" said you would laugh so hard you'd fall off your bedpan. The review was correct. Heartily recommended for every hospital patient as a "cheerer upper."

What I was in the hospital for, you don't want to know. But a friend dropped this book by and it really cheered me up. Great cartoons, too

Not as good as William Anderson family misadventure books, but funny and enjoyable reading. Anyone that has been in a hospital will enjoy this book, and the price is right. William C Anderson is one of my favorite authors, I recommend all of his books.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! 30 Jan 2014

Mr. Anderson points his witty pen at hospitals and hospital staff. With laughter, holding both my sides, I say, Well done. Well done indeed.
