Known 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 and educate in equal measure.

Two books have been published by Maurice in recent years – compilations of his work over 30 years,  both best-sellers.

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

Gay Byrne, Late 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, 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


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 skillful writer with a great wit

Alexander Fitzgerald, Editor, Irish Tatler Man
