Youngson and Schott cover the gamut of medical accidents from famous quacks to curious forms of sexual healing from blunders with the brain to drugs worse than the diseases they are intended to treat In Medical Blunders we find shamefully dangerous doctors human guinea pigs masturbation treated as a disease requiring treatment and the legendary surgeon who was himself a craven morphine addict The resulting picture is one which depicts medical mistakes that are incredible misguided arrogant cruel or stupendously wrong headed .
