The Sawbones Book

by Justin McElroy and Sydnee McElroy

This book highlights some of the unique and horrifying remedies used throughout society in the progression of modern medicine. From 'the resurrection men', where we learn the origins of the modern autopsy in ancient Egypt, to 'weight loss' where they discuss the plentiful diet methods that have been used through the ages. With commentary from the writers and plenty of fascinating information to tell, this book is a fun and informative read that goes hand in hand with their much-loved podcast.
