Description

This hilarious book offers over thirteen hundred short quotations and anecdotes to help you laugh your way to recovery. This volume of the unique collection of remarkable statements made by ordinary people in medical settings was compiled by John J. Leeson, MD, specifically to showcase the patient side of humor in health care. The series was launched after the doctor realized how much better he felt when his patients made him laugh, something he needed as he worked through grief following the tragic death of his daughter. Leeson saw multiple benefits from these quotes: Not only are they therapeutic for other patients in similar situations, but also they assist medical professionals as they seek to better understand their patients' perspectives. Covering topics ranging from pain and medications to pediatrics, aging, surgery, cancer, and death, the chapters in this book are arranged in an order that conveys the emotional rollercoaster of the people involved. Most importantly, the book highlights the true power of humor as medicine. The patient in pain will show you how to find joy. Someone in crisis will remind you about faith. And a person facing death will teach you how to live.show more
