5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely laugh-out-loud funny, 7 Jan 2013
This review is from: Pills, Thrills and Methadone Spills: The Adventures of a Community Pharmacist (Kindle Edition)
Mr Dispenser, Twitter's highly entertaining anonymous pharmacist, has gone and written a book. He's compiled just over 130 pages worth of pharmacy-based jokes, anecdotes, and blog posts - and the result is genuinely laugh-out-loud funny.

Community pharmacists apparently share a similar geeky and absurdist sense of humour with many GPs and hospital doctors, which means that the humour in this volume aimed directly at my funny bone. I laughed out loud repeatedly when reading this, most often at the pithy anecdotes of insane situations in which pharmacists find themselves - and even when the book is gently (or not so gently!) ribbing doctors like me.

More than just humour, though, Pills, Thrills and Methadone Spills gave me a better appreciation for what community pharmacists do all day. In that sense, it was even a little bit educational.

This probably isn't a book for a general audience. It's very much aimed at pharmacists. As a non-pharmacist, some bits went over my head to some extent, and I'd imagine that those outside of healthcare would struggle to see the humour in much of the book. And, if I'm being very picky, I'd probably have liked a bit of a narrative thread in there somewhere too. But Pills, Thrills and Methadone Spills is sure to raise a smile among pharmacists, pharmacy students, and perhaps some more of the medical community besides.
