Description

“[A]n insightful look at human hubris in the story of would-be cures of all our ailments.―Â

—NPRâ€s Science Friday “Much more than simply an overview of radioactive

suppositories and mummy powder, Quackery is a thrilling dive into the human desire to live, to

thrive, and the incredible power of belief. Delightful, disturbing, and delightfully disturbing,

Quackery shares fascinating medical tales from throughout the ages, including the age we live in.

It astonishes with the history of what patients once did in the name of ‘health†and makes

you wonder what we will one day look back on with equal shock.― —Dylan Thuras, coauthor of

Atlas Obscura  “Fascinating, fun, and occasionally infuriating. . . . a cautionary tale that

should resonate even today—a reminder that when it comes to health care, being an informed

consumer may indeed save your life.―  —Deborah Blum, author of The Poisonerâ€s

Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz-Age New York  “Quackery

brilliantly educates and entertains through the errors of doctors and scientists of the past. An

entertaining read that will shock you and change how you view the health claims on products that

we see daily.―  —David B. Agus, MD, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller The End of

Illness and Professor of Medicine and Engineering, University of Southern California  “A

bubbling elixir of the comically useless, the wildly hyped, and the just plain weird in would-be cures

through history. Peel away those quaint old patent medicine labels and add some modern

buzzwords, and marvel at how much has (and yet hasnâ€t really) changed.―  —Paul

Collins, author of The Murder of the Century: The Gilded Age Crime That Scandalized a City and

Sparked the Tabloid Wars  “Next time someone reminisces to you about the good old days,

remind them how people used to wash their faces with arsenic, rub on radium liniment, and give

each other tobacco smoke enemas. This compulsively readable compendium is a great reminder

that medicine in the old days was often worse than the disease—and that thereâ€s always

reason to be wary of ‘miracle cures.â€â€•  —Bess Lovejoy, author of Rest in Pieces: The

Curious Fates of Famous Corpses  “Entertaining and informative.― —Publishers

Weekly Read more Lydia Kang, MD, is a practicing internal medicine physician and author of
