When every hiccup sounds like the call of doom, each stomach pang hints at incipient cancer and a headache means its time to firm up your last will and testament, this book provides just the relief you need. Gene Weingarten, who has spent his whole life immersed in the eclectic details of bizarre symptoms, self-diagnosing every minor ache as a potentially deadly disease, here examines: the mind of the hypochondriac; how your doctor can kill you; ulcers and other visceral fears; the snap, crackle and pops of your body that spell disaster; things that can take an eye out; and interpreting DocSpeak.
