The Staff and the Serpent: Pertinent and Impertinent Observations on the World of Medicine

If laughter is good medicine, then the twenty-two essays offered here by Dr. Allen B. Weisse should prove a hearty antidote to a host of ills suffered by doctors, students and would-be students of medicine, amateur and professional medical historians, and, of course, patients, those of us who wonder what the medical profession is all about and how it affects us.Often humorous and always informative, these essays cover a broad range of medical subjects.
