Collecting weird and wonderful tales from the history of medicine, this anthology presents the German doctor who fought a duel with a sausage, the Harley Street physician-turned-novelist who invented a disease—and its remedy—to keep his clients happy, and the quiet and cautious Swiss scientist who inadvertently unleashed LSD on the world.
