Book of Medical Mistakes based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
This book is terribly inaccurate with regards to its descriptions of medicine and doctors. It has seemingly endless typos and terrible grammar, not to mention that it describes REM sleep (a normal stage of sleep) as 'suffering'. I want my money back.
This book is definitely not the book to buy if you are looking for a credible source on medical mistakes. However, if accuracy is not a concern, it is an interesting book to read. The book tells of countless blunders by early medical practitioners up to modern day doctors. I learned a lot of interesting about the history behind many of present medical practices. Some topics covered are medications, surgeries, and their side effects, fraudulent billing practices, negligent doctors, and unethical procedures and practices. This book is extremely sensational. It is fast to make claims and statements that are not backed up by facts. The book offers no references or citations as to where to where the data and information was gathered. There are also hundreds of grammar errors and typos.
