Known best for his weekly dose of Rude Health in the Sunday Independent, Dr Maurice Guéret likes to prescribe outside the box. His writings on materia medica entertain, educate and exasperate in equal measures.

IMD Publishing has published two books by Maurice in recent years – both best-sellers, compilations of his best writings.

‘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

‘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

‘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
