"Mentioned in whispers for decades; burned in Manchuria; worshipped in Peru; the only book to be listed on the Vatican's Index Librorum Prohibitorum twice, for emphasis; available again at last, in this definitive edition. Welcome to the Lambshead Guide. Disease-mongers, shudder." -- Dr. China Miéville
"Now you will discover what imaginary doctors have known for decades: when confronted with the unlikely, turn to Lambshead. It will tell you exactly what not to do." -- Dr. Cory Doctorow, author of Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom
"In a world in which The Almighty, with limitless imagination and boundless perversity, delights in bedeviling physicians with the concoction of ever more bizarre maladies, the Lambshead Guide stands out, with all the gravitas of an impacted colon, like a lighthouse whose beam illuminates the bitter night of Ignorance and leads us back to the sweet ether of Scientific reason." -- Dr. Jeffrey Ford, author of The Portrait of Mrs. Charbuque
"A must-read for every student of medicine. It should be required reading in medical school and residency, to bring back the perspective of humor—and the humor of perspective—to our oh-so-serious profession. We all were once creative dreamers in another life." -- Dr. Mark Shamis, M.D.
