bookfor the fact that I loved the people who wrote it instead of the book itself It s filled with great medical facts and anecdotes, but I did find myself wondering if there could have been less asides especially as they seemed interestingly placed on the page, often mid sentence and almost no photos were captioned Justin and Sydnee s way of interjecting humor with medical fact works great in a verbal podcast, but in a book it wasn t as fun for me The photo thing might have just been me, but when you re talking about 4 different doctors on one page and there s only one photo, I want to know what doctor I m looking at A lot of reviews for this book include really concerning notes about the print quality and editorial issues I definitely don t have a first printing, thank goodness, because the book itself was very well bound and no pages were hand glued together Yes, seriously, take a look at early reviews It sounded like a wild ride HOWEVER, I will note that even in my second printing, there were several editorial typos that I caught, and some were quite bad We re talking extra key strokes tablerx for table, as a random made up example.Overall, I loved the experience of reading this and am thrilled to support Sydnee and Justin with the purchase of this book I m also glad to add this to my library as a memento to the podcast as someday they might decide to stop recording their series gasp, hopefully not, shame on me for suggesting that don t listen to me Sydnee and Justin and I ll always be able to open this up and remember what their show was like.Blog

the suffering of the patients, or rather victims But how did these questionable approaches devoid of any good clinical practice and scientific method develop What were the causes of so many wrong turns Many advanced cultures already had well developed and advanced treatments, therapies, hygiene and rudimentary surgery With the collapse of the empires, all knowledge was lost and dark ages with massive backlashes befell The body was portrayed as a sinful, temporary shell and enriched with abstruse fantasy tropes The disturbed relationship to sexuality, death and bodily functions led to the ban on essential achievements of the past Medical research had been silenced by the taboo on researching corpses or even examining living people.The worldview, disturbed by the ideologies of humans, was reflected in medicine in manifold ways Illness was often not soberly and objectively seen as a natural condition to be treated but as something of cosmic origin Be it a punishment, a sign or a reward Jay, sicknesses of martyrs and saints, what a piece of luck to get infected, I mean chosen by higher entities.The craving for reputation by the quacks and charlatans fed the superstition of the uneducated population The doctors knew that they always needed a good story that could be adapted to the various faiths mystical, fantastic explanations as a prologue to the spectacular treatment This randomly and accidentally caused eitherdamage than the disease or had no use at all In exceptional cases, it helped.The theme is an excellent illustration of what delusion can do How to use the credulity of people to build institutionalized power complexes These spread confused heresies into all areas of life Today, in the Western world, this can only be seen in the form of charlatanry and scientifically proven ineffective healing methods and therapies But only a few generations separate the reputable medicine from fits that seem like a mixture of splatter horror and black comedy Accordingly, one has to decide as a reader, depending on personality, whether one laughs or is shocked.Today, the obstacle of modern medicine is the problem of one sidedness For example, the Human Genome Project, which deducted funding from all other research areas Further, the research was unilaterally pushed in one direction and paid too little attention to all different approaches and theories Ironically, there are now no further results On the contrary, the underestimated RNA played a muchsignificant role than expected Subjectively speaking, one could have come to the conclusion earlier that the source code RNA has something to do with the software DNA But whatever This could be further excavated by other examples from recent history and the future will certainly unveilbias.It opens a very likely option That many of the fundamental doctrines of relevant authorities are partially or wholly wrong which might bring paradigm shifts in some medical disciplines in the future Not even to mention psychology and psychiatry, which are much harder to analyze and quantify.How will our actual healing methods be evaluated in the retrospective These non individualized therapies based on pharmacological hammers and sometimes unsafe treatments That fallible people cut into other people with sharpened steel The interdependence of politics and the pharmaceutical industry And how little we knew about the body and its functional mechanisms To seek humility in the mistakes of the past would be good to prevent that such erroneous paths are not gone longer than necessary.Die Kreativit t der Menschen schl gt sich in verhaltenskreativen Optionen zur Verschlechtbesserung des Gesundheitszustandes nieder.In der Retrospektive mutet vieles unglaublich an und man kann das Leid der Patienten, oder eher Opfer, nur schwer ermessen Nur, wie kam es zu diesen fragw rdigen Ans tzen, die jeder guten klinischen Praxis und wissenschaftlicher Herangehensweise entbehrten Was waren die Ursachen so vieler Irrwege Viele Hochkulturen hatten bereits gut entwickelte und weit fortgeschrittene Behandlungen, Therapien, Hygiene und Chirurgie Mit dem Kollaps der Reiche ging all das Wissen verloren und dunkle Zeitalter mit massiven Backlashs brachen herein Der K rper wurde als s ndige, vor bergehende H lle dargestellt und mit abstrusen Fantasytropes angereichert Das gest rte Verh ltnis zu Sexualit t, Tod und K rperfunktionen f hrte zum Verbot sinnvoller Errungenschaften der Vergangenheit Die medizinische Forschung wurde durch das Tabu, an Leichen oder selbst an lebenden Menschen zu forschen, still gelegt.Das durch die Ideologien der Menschen gest rte Weltbild schlug sich in vielf ltiger Weise auf die Medizin nieder Krankheit wurde h ufig nicht n chtern und objektiv als ein zu nat rliches, zu behandelndes Leiden gesehen, sondern als etwas von kosmischen Ursprung Sei es als Strafe, Zeichen oder Belohnung Die Profilierungssucht der Quacksalber n hrte den Aberglauben der ungebildeten Bev lkerung Die rzte wussten, dass sie immer eine gute Geschichte, die sich f r die verschiedenen Glaubensgeb ude adaptieren lie , brauchten Mystische, fantastische Erkl rungen als Prolog f r die spektakul re Behandlung Diese richtete rein zuf llig entweder mehr Schaden an als die Krankheit oder nutzte nichts In Ausnahmef llen half es.Die Thematik ist eine sch ne Veranschaulichung, was Verblendung anrichten kann Wie sich die Leichtgl ubigkeit der Menschen ausnutzen l sst, um institutionalisierte Machtkomplexe zu errichten Diese verbreiten wirre Irrlehren in alle Bereiche des Lebens hinein Heute sieht man das, in der westlichen Welt, nur noch in Form von Scharlatanerie und wissenschaftlich erwiesen wirkungslosen Heilverfahren und Therapien Doch nur eine Zeitspanne von ein paar Generationen trennt die seri se Medizin von Anwandlungen, die wie eine Mischung aus Splatter Horror und schwarzer Kom die anmuten Entsprechend muss man als Leser entscheiden ob man je nach Naturell lachen oder mit aufgerissenen Augen schockiert sein soll Ich lachte mit weit aufgerissenen Augen Heute liegt der Hemmschuh der modernen Medizin in dem Problem der Einseitigkeit Etwa das Human Genom Projekt, dass von allen andere Forschungsrichtungen die F rdermittel abzog Weiters wurde die Forschung einseitig in eine Richtung gedr ngt und alle anderen Ans tze und Theorien viel zu wenig Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt Ironischerweise kommt man jetzt zu keinen weiteren Ergebnissen Im Gegenteil, die untersch tzte RNA spielte eine viel gr ere Rolle als angenommen Subjektiv gesagt, h tte man zwar fr her darauf kommen k nnen, dass der Quellcode RNA etwas mit der Software DNA zu tun haben k nnen Aber whatever Dazu k nnte man noch weitere Beispiele aus j ngerer Vergangenheit ausgraben und die Zukunft wird noch genug ans Tageslicht f rdern.Es er ffnet eine sehr wahrscheinliche Option Dass viele der als unantastbare Lehrmeinung von wichtigen Autorit ten geltende Ans tze teilweise oder ganz falsch sind Was in einigen medizinischen Disziplinen in Zukunft Paradigmenwechsel mit sich bringen d rfte Von Psychologie und Psychiatrie, die sich noch viel schwerer analysieren und quantifizieren lassen, ganz zu schweigen.Wie man unsere Heilmethoden in der Retrospektive betrachten wird Diese nicht individualisierte, auf pharmakologische H mmer und mitunter unsicheren Therapien fu enden Verfahren Dass fehlbare Menschen mit Stahl in andere Menschen schnitten Die Verflechtungen von Politik und Pharmaindustrie Und wie wenig wir ber den K rper und seine Funktionsmechanismen wussten In den Fehlern der Vergangenheit Demut zu suchen w re gut, um derartige Irrwege nicht l nger als notwendig beschreiten zu m ssen I love Justin and Sydnee, but as

edition that never should ve seen print That said, I m not sure this book was really even meant for fans I listen to Sawbones, and there wasn t a single thing in this book that I hadn t already heard I understand branching out into print to attract those who might not want enjoy podcasts, but they still advertised it on the show To their fans Who surely deserve some sort of original content in addition to the exact same regurgitated stories I honestly didn t gain anything from reading it And sure the art was new, but that s not nearly enough The portrait of Justin didn t even look like him This whole thing just feels like a clear cash grab and I regret the time spent reading it Easily a 5 for content even if none of it was new to me and the gorgeous layout illustrations, sidebars for fun facts but the book loses MAJOR points for the awful editing I can honestly say I have never come across as many typos and glaring errors in a book as I did while reading this At first I began sharing them on my IG stories before I realized I was soon sharing several errors ON THE SAME PAGE And this happened multiple times.I ve seen a misspelling or two in books before, but T Easily a 5 for

podcast, but this Parts of sentences are repeated, entire words are missing At one point there was a sentence that..I don t know what happened, part of another sentence got inserted into the middle of it somehow The best though, just when I thought the end was in sight, it literally ended The book went from page 205 to 212 I m so sorry this happened to them 9 10 This is the kind of book I want to readof It had me giggling insanely, which sounds weird considering the morbid and gross subject matter, but the authors wrote it in an engaging way and also this is the kind of stuff that I find amusing Sorry But anyways, there are a couple things I disagree with the authors on but it was interesting to see how far medicine has come and I enjoyed the hell out of this amazing book. I really enjoy this book It s very much like the podcast, which I also enjoy However, there are a lot of problems with the book itself There are many, many typos, which are distracting The paper is sturdy, but to the point where it was difficult to turn pages because they kept sticking together Finally, towards the end, the pages stick together, and then skip I think I am missing some pages, but I can t return the book for the missing pages because I got it signed by the writers and illust I really enjoy this book It s very much like the podcast, which I also enjoy However, there are a lot of problems with the book itself There are many, many typos, which are distracting The paper is sturdy, but to the point where it was difficult to turn pages because they kept sticking together Finally, towards the end, the pages stick together, and then skip I think I am missing some pages, but I can t return the book for the missing pages because I got it signed by the writers and illustrators at the BN in Tribeca when they were there For these reasons, I wish I could give it a 4.5, but I m giving it a 5 because I don t want to bring down the average ratings So, great book but poorly edited and printed We are lucky that we can read a book like this and be grateful that though medicine today is far from perfect, it has certainly come a very long way This is a gorgeous book, the cover, the full color illustrations and ads inside We can laugh at some of them now, but people in the past believed in some of these outrageous cure alls The constant solutions to the obesity, which goal is still relevant today But back in the past we would see ads like this one.EAT EAT EAT Always stay thin Fat We are lucky that we can read a book like this and be grateful that though medicine today is far from perfect, it has certainly come a very long way This is a gorgeous book, the cover, the full color illustrations and ads inside We can laugh at some of them now, but people in the past believed in some of these outrageous cure alls The constant solutions to the obesity, which goal is still relevant today But back in the past we would see ads like this one.EAT EAT EAT Always stay thin Fat the enemy that is shortening your life BANISHED HOW with sanitized tapeworms Her packed Easy to swallow Seriously Or how about buying a bar of La Parks obesity soap Think that might do the trick Drilling into skulls with hand drills Of course the ice pick lobotomy Poor Rosemarie Kennedy sWont begin to tell you what they did with urine and feces What about a magic belt that one could wrap around themselves, turn on the battery and you had a solution for nausea Mummy meat crumbled into tinctures to stop bleeding Well that a few of many of the disturbing things one will read in this book It does have a few things, like some of the uses for honey, that has a certainly validity to this day A kind of gross, quirky and interesting book Oh and don t read the book summary, I think it gives away much to much This is my favorite podcast, so I was excited to get my hands on this book Unfortunately it fell a little flat First, if you listen to the podcast or enjoy medical history this book is not going to add to you knowledge That isn t a negative Just be aware that it sof an introduction to the subject than an immersion into it Second, the podcast is hilarious the book not so much The dynamic the two authors have verbally doesn t translate well into the written word I ve experienced the This is my favorite podcast, so I was excited to get my hands on this book Unfortunately it fell a little flat First, if you listen to the podcast or enjoy medical history this book is not going to add to you knowledge That isn t a negative Just be aware that it sof an introduction to the subject than an immersion into it Second, the podcast is hilarious the book not so much The dynamic the two authors have verbally doesn t translate well into the written word I ve experienced the same when reading other books by stand up comedians Lastly, the book needed better editing I found multiple typos and grammatical errors This is what bothered me the most as it s a pet peeve of mine I still gave it 3 stars as I did enjoy the subject matter, and I thought the page layouts were beautiful The illustrator did a great job I think this would be a great gift for someone who doesn t listen to the podcast but has an interest in the medical field
