Synopsis

The "Dave Barry of medicine" takes on the foibles of human health in this wildly funny collection.

Irreverent yet authoritative, Dr. Dave's practical medical advice for everyday ailments is entertaining and informative. In the style of Dave Barry and Rick Reilly, GP and well-loved syndicated columnist, Dr. Dave takes on all kinds of health issues, including smoking ("the nicotine patch works best when placed directly over the mouth"), dandruff ("a funny little fungus called malassezia furfur-need a real unique name for the next kid?"), and the body mass index ("useless, corrupt and irrelevant, the Chicago Cubs of measurements").

The opinionated and irreverent Dr. Dave also provides authoritative, uptodate, and practical advice about commonplace conditions and remedies while poking fun at his patients, Britney Spears, lawn bowling, and, most of all, himself.

Whether he's relating the need to reseed receding hairlines or meditating on the Museum of Menstruation, Dr. Dave holds nothing back.
