About The Book

No need for a second opinion--this collection is a healthy dose of funny.

New Yorker cartoonist Leo Cullum found a different way to beat colon cancer: by creating cartoons that poked fun at the medical industry with his all-too-true medical-themed new work, Suture Self.

With observations like "It was a rare, but serious, side effect" and "This IS a second opinion. At first, I thought you had something else." you will literally split your sides.

This book should be in every doctor's office waiting room.

Laughter is the best medicine. No copay required.

* Includes over 100 medical-themed cartoons that will leave readers feeling great. This is a perfect get-well gift idea.

* More than 800 of Leo's cartoons have appeared in The New Yorker since 1977.

* Cullum's work has also appeared regularly in Barrons and the Harvard Business Review, and has been featured at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
