Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This handy volume (with its washable cover) will keep you thoroughly informed about your physical and emotional well-being and the critical condition of the healthcare industry. It's all here, from antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the water supply to the truth about that rash on your elbow. Fortunately, The Hypochondriac's Handbook also provides the antidote with information and health tips that will enable you to live longer — and hence worry more!

Synopsis:

Feeling good? Are you sure? This hilarious guide — a sequel to the best-selling Paranoid's Pocket Guide — is guaranteed to make you wonder. With hundreds of symptoms to watch for and in-depth information on the latest germ mutations, this compendium offers compelling proof that there is always something to worry about, even if you seem to be in perfect shape. A must-have for today's health-conscious individual, it also reveals worrisome facts about doctors and insurance companies. It's packed with black-and-white photos documenting everyday items that can menace your health — often seemingly "harmless" items such as a pencil or a water fountain. Fortunately, this book will make you laugh, which releases endorphins and promotes health — for the moment. For soundness of body and mind, read the Hypochondriac's Handbook. Better safe than sorry!
