I'm No Quack: A Book of Doctor Cartoons

I'm No Quack: A Book of Doctor Cartoons Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It doesn't take a degree in medicine to appreciate New Yorker cartoonist Danny Shanahan's new book of more than 120 doctor cartoons, so put up your (hospital-issued) stocking feet and prepare yourself for a healthy dose of humor. From contemptible cafeteria food to major medical mishaps, laissez-faire doctors to crazy psychiatrists, Shanahan's characters will leave you feeling healthier, wealthier (minus the doctor's bill, of course), if not wiser.

I'm No Quack will have you in stitches, from a nutcracker telling his patient while performing a prostate exam, "Turn your head and scream," to a doctor with New York City seated on the examining table, "I'm going to prescribe something to help you sleep," to a practitioner comforting a frightened spouse, "You can rest assured, Mrs. Wilson, that your husband will receive the best care known to medical coverage." Shanahan's madcap humor and colorful characters are the perfect remedy for your funny bone.
