Quacks & Con Artists: The Dubious History of Doctors

The Dubious History of Doctors

Written by John Farndon, Illustrated by Venita Dean

This book was AMAZING! To be honest, I picked it because of the title, and I’m so glad I did! I learned a lot (nose sewn to your arm anyone?) and I might’ve thrown up a little bit too (spin doctors….no thanks!) The pictures made even the gross stuff seem not so gross and the hard to understand things not so hard.

This book should be on everyone’s list to either buy or read. I know I’ll be recommending it every chance I get!
