Alan Cassels, co-author of the international bestseller Selling Sickness: How the World's Biggest Pharmaceutical Companies are Turning Us All into Patients, returns to his favourite topic armed with outrageous humour and even more outrageous facts.

As if Dr. Seuss had taken on an overmedicated, overdiagnosed culture, Alan Cassels offers up a great romp of disorders that go bump in the night, along with the industry-sponsored drugs marketed to make us better again.

This illustrated, verse-form alphabet is not for the faint of heart at any age. It is, however, meticulously footnoted for theraputic use by consumers and health policy pundits of all shapes, sizes and chemical compositions.

Take all twenty six letters of Cassels’ alphabet with a dose of good old skeptical humour. Trust us, your health care policy will feel better in the morning.

A pocket paperback original.
