0805511032 334 pages including index. A doctor tells why today's physicians are so useless. "Dr. Malleson writes with some of the acerbic wit and toughmindedness of Dr. Szasz and Eric Hoffer... he takes on doctors, patients, and the whole saga of medical superstition right up to the modern medical scene... Dr. Malleson manages a persuasive impressionistic picture of doctors, drug merchandisers, and patients wallowing in a welfare-state morass - the doctors wastefully trying to 'cure' patients who too frequently would do better on their own." - Publisher's Weekly. Illustrated in black and white. Average wear.
