‎RICHARD GORDON‎

‎Doctor in the House‎

‎Michael Joseph 1953 Hardcover, 190pp. "Richard Gordon's acceptance into St Swithan's medical school came as no surprise to anyone, least of all him - after all, he had been to public school, played first XV rugby, and his father was, let's face it, 'a St Swithan's man'. Surely he was set for life. It was rather a shock then to discover that, once there, he would actually have to work, and quite hard. Fortunately for Richard Gordon, life proved not to be all dissection and textbooks after all. This hilarious hospital comedy is perfect reading for anyone who's ever wondered exactly what medical students get up to in their training. Just don't read it on your way to the doctor's!

‎RICHARD GORDON‎

‎Great Medical Mysteries‎

‎Harmondsworth. Middlesex., Book Club Associates, 1984. First BCA Edition, Binding: Cloth, Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾ tall Hardback Why did Mary Toft give birth to seventeen rabbits? Whose teeth did George Washington eat with? Was the Marquis de Sade really a kindly man? These and many other extraordinary questions are posed in this hilarious new book by Richard Gordon. (And answers aren't necessary at the back.) The range of inquiry is phenomenal - probing throught the mystifications of history to perhaps more mundane contemporary enigmas.Is smoking good for you? Would another little drink do us any harm? Is the Loch Ness monster human? The author's prescription is entirely legible, and a regular dosage of Great Medical Mysteries is heartily recommended. The author's absorption in the infinite, fascinating fancies and frailties of human beings is a very personal solution to one last Hippocratic conundrum - why do so many doctor's write books?
