Highlights include:

- Almost 400 translations of misinterpreted medical terms

- Humorous definitions and clinical indicators

- Weird medical treatments

- Includes original research

- Perfectly sized for a lab-coat pocket

- Brings some humor to a boring shift or rotation

- More funny and less helpful than a medical dictionary
