Laughter, wisdom, and joy radiate from patient to reader in John J. Leeson, MD's inspiring new books, Patient Quotes: The Medical Humor Book Series.With thousands of quotes that cover a range of different topics including medications, pediatrics, cancer and mental health,PATIENT QUOTES reveal the unique ways the patients administer to the doctors the best medicine of all--laughter.
These books are a unique compilation of remarkable statements made by ordinary people receiving medical care. These are the only works to specifically showcase the patients' side of the humor in healthcare. There is an unmet need for humor and inspiration as therapy in most patients. Also, there is under-appreciated humor in many others. PATIENT QUOTES is designed to connect these two important issues. The messages these books contain help people cope and feel more at ease with difficult health issues. Also, after reading them, healthcare workers report a renewed appreciation for the patients' perspective and motivation to help them in new ways. So the cycle of humor continues.
Proving the value of the material in these books, an alternate title could very well be HOW THE PATIENTS SAVED THE DOCTR: Reversing The Roles--When The Doctor Is The Patient. That is the inside story about how these books were started. The doctor realized how much better he felt when his patients made him laugh--they made him laugh his way to recovery from the tragic death of his daughter.
The first volume contains over 600 exceptional quotes divided into chapters by medical topics that are common challenges people face such as diabetes, weight gain, habits, and aging. It is full of quotes that are humorous, insightful and profound. They serve as self-help tips to keep you smiling and strong when dealing with difficult health issues.
Volume 2 has over 1300 quotes including important chapters such as: How did That Happen?, Surgery, Cancer and You Might Have Mental Illness If . . . .They are arranged in an order that shares with the reader an emotional roller coaster experienced by the people involved. They prove that you have never heard it all. 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.
Volume 3 is also unique with 1100 quotes. It features chapters containing quotes from famous people who had to be patients, doctor and nurse quotes, and amazing conversations in healthcare. It is LOL reality entertainment as people get hilarious (when they need) to change their minds using humor as a healthy defense mechanism.
Laughter is the contagious medicine.--John Lassegard, MD
