Entertaining, amusing, fascinating and interesting – what more could you want in a book?

Gay Byrne, Broadcaster

At last, the Maurice Gueret compendium.  What the Doctor Saw pulls together a collection of writings from Irish medicine’s sharpest, funniest and most incisive writer.

Dr Paul Carson, International Bestselling Author.

A sharp edge, healthy cynicism and a real love for medicine. Buy this book!

Brendan O’Connor, Broadcaster

A wonderful book to dip into, learn from, and enjoy.

Sue Leonard, Irish Examiner

Arguably the most important (certainly the most entertaining) Irish medical writer of the past decade.

Dr Stephen McWilliams, Irish Medical News

A fine collection of ruminations on stuff that concerns us all. The guy can write.

Tom Doorley, Daily Mail

Superb showcase, a brilliant compilation from a skilful writer with a great wit.

Alexander Fitzgerald, Editor, Irish Tatler Man

While much of this book is highly amusing and all of it very readable, there is an utter, utter seriousness at its heart. Both of Dr Guéret’s books are valuable additions to the medical literature.

Professor Brendan Kelly, Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine

He has produced a rarity – a second book that is even better than the first. Incisive, observant and humorous without losing any of the essential humanity so prominent in the author’s debut.
