If laughter is the best medicine, The Get Well Book by John McPherson is just what the doctor ordered. Filled with inside laughs about the cures, the pills, and the little indignities that doctors deliver, it will help heal the sick and make the weak whole again. In this sly, slight volume, patients will find a get-well present and greeting card all in one. McPherson's syndicated cartoon Close to Home captures the absurd and ludicrous details of everyday life, then puts a comic twist on them. Filled with seventy-five black-and-white Close to Home cartoons, The Get Well Book is the ideal pick-me-up for anyone laid up in the hospital, facing a medical procedure, or just down with the flu.
