The Sawbones Book The Hilarious Horrifying Road to Modern Medicine

A compelling often hilarious and occasionally horrifying exploration of how modern medicine came to beWondering whether eating powdered mummies might be just the thing to cure your ills Tempted by those vintage ads suggesting you wear radioactive underpants for virility Ever considered drilling a hole in your head to deal with those pesky headaches Probably not But for thousands of years people have done things like this and things that make radioactive underpants seem downright sensible In their hit podcast Sawbones Sydnee and Justin McElroy breakdown the weird and wonderful way we got to modern healthcare And some of the terrifying detours along the wayEvery week Dr Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin amaze amuse and gross out depending on the week hundr. The content of this book is great Sydnee and Justin s contrasting takes on Kellogg was one of the funniest things I ve ever read and Teylor s art is wonderful But I had bought this book to give to my brother a doctor as a Christmas gift and I just can t do it not because the book is so good and I want to keep it for myself my original fear but because it is so obviously unfinished that it feels insultingTo call the writing a rough draft is generous Almost every page contains misspellings grammatical errors duplicate words page placeholders and other mistakes The editor and publisher dropped the ball so badly that I felt a sense of dread with each page I read waiting for the next example of how little attention was given to cleaning up and editing the writing There wasn t a need for the different parts either the stories often didn t seem to fit well in the categories they were assigned to Finally and most atrocious of all there are eight pages at the end that are simply missing the publisher just GLUED TOGETHER the backs of pages 205 to 212 If these were any other content creators besides the McElroys there is no way this book would have such a high rating on Goodreads I understand that folks are enthusiastic to support them I am too but such a high rating is extremely dishonest because the construction and editing of the book is so unforgivably flawed I can t believe someone actually made the decision to ship out the books in this state It feels like they re taking advantage of the fans willingness to forgive the creators and that is bad businessTo Weldon Owen the publisher You ought to be ashamed I am going to ask for my money backTo the McElroys Hold your publisher accountable You KNOW that the fans would have forgiven a delay if it meant receiving a completed and polished product I hope the next printing is better

This was really horribly disappointing Do not pay money for this book First off as other reviewers have stated this book is woefully under edited The page layouts made no sense with some of the sidebars clearly in the wrong place based on the content they were referring to On a page with multiple historical figures named there was a single portrait and no caption indicating who it was And just a really egregious amount of typos For a book that s supposed to be so fact based one would think the editors would pay far attention to these kinds of things The McElroys have enough dedicated fans who would ve happily waited for a delayed publish date rather than read an 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

    910 This is the kind of book I want to read of 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
