The Doctor’s Case is the latest book from Dr Maurice Guéret.
This new collection of writing follows on the success of his bestseller What The Doctor Saw.
Known for his popular dose of Rude Health each week in the Sunday Independent, the good doctor delves deep into his Gladstone bag to uncover a delightful repository of clinical gems. Dr Guéret ventures out on busman’s holidays to Venice, Paris, Madrid, Florence, Madeira and further afield. He ponders whether the varicose veins that run in the legs of his family saved grandfather Guéret’s life during the Great War at Ypres. He examines Roald Dahl’s Medical History, Odd Popes, Spanish Influenza, Treatment of Haemorrhoids in Lanzarote, Dying in Zurich, Deceased Golfers, Nicknames for Surgeons, Bad Breath, Medical Murderers, Famous Children of Doctors, Veterinary Malapropisms, Romantic Hospital Fiction and much more. Delivered with his trademark wry and witty style, this superb compilation of writings will delight readers who already love his work, and bring plenty of new admirers too.
REVIEWS OF DR MAURICE GUERET’S LATEST BOOK – The Doctor’s Case.
- 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. Dr Stephen McWilliams, Irish Medical News
