The books is seprated into 12 different stories. Each story is a different generation in the family of Doctor Olaf Van Schuler. Each one has a doctor who is just about as crazy if not worse than the one before. Makes you appreciate modern medicine. There is a story of a brother who gives his sister a lobotomy, one story where the doctors daughter would rather work with insane prisoners than get married and start a family.

Interesting and different.
I recommend this book if you are a fan of weird but true medical history. Crazy to think they used to do this to people! I really liked the depth of some of the characters, definitely made the story flow. This was a quick read, had me fascinated from start to finish.Was this review helpful?
