Publisher Comments:

The facts behind the addictive medical drama starring Golden Globe winner Hugh Laurie.

Week after week, House, M.D. has held viewers' attention with brilliant cast performances and intriguing diagnostic mysteries often solved with daring treatments. But how much of the medical detail is real and how much is fabricated? In The Medical Science of House, M.D., Andrew Holtz, a well-known medical journalist, reveals how medical detectives work-how they follow symptoms to their source. He examines cases on the show and provides answers to such questions as:

  • How can a teenager adopted at birth nearly die because his biological mother didn't get a vaccine?
  • How can a husband's faith in his wife's fidelity determine whether radical treatment will cure her or kill her?
  • How can a missed eye-doctor appointment reveal a genetic disease?
  • How can doctors choose the right course for a pregnant woman when one may kill her and the other would abort her fetus?

Synopsis:

Week after week, House, M.D. has held viewers' attention with brilliant cast performances and intriguing diagnostic mysteries often solved with daring treatments. In this text, a medical journalist revels how medical detectives work.

I found this book at half priced book fairly cheap and couldnt pass up buying it. I couldnt believe someone had put so much thought into the show, and am so glad he did! What I really enjoyed most about the book was how he'd start tying in an episode of "house" and then go on to inform you about medical facts that you didnt even realize could relate. It's a great read for many reasons, I must say he's a very talented writer and I learned a lot from this book.
