So get in there now if you’re a teenager and want a truly compelling read that’s also a bit different.

We've all had one of those days. Yet, even under the most stressful conditions, humor seems to find its way through-at times it's even sharper than your surgical instruments! Dr. Waters was asked by hundreds of readers of his first book, A Heart Surgeon's Little Instruction Book to create a similar work for all surgical specialties. He responded to the request by assembling a stunning collection of the best one-liners from hundreds of colleagues around the world. Here's a sampling of this book's humor and advice: Recognize when a referral is just someone wanting his or her problem to become your problem. Never let a published article stand in the way of common sense. Your percentages of body fat and moral fiber should never approximate each other. Be wary of colleagues who are more conversant with their billings than they are with their clinical results. Start each case with a clear conscience and an empty bladder.
Sometimes the environment surrounding an operating room is way too serious! Let loose with this handy paperback, which is destined to be the topic of conversation in ORs everywhere. Wit, wisdom, and sage advice are furnished to the surgical team via 452 one-liners. These tidbits of information will cause the whole surgical team to reflect, chuckle, and even re-evaluate their bedside manner. These thought-provoking, yet witty quotes promise to keep the surgical team in stitches. Here's a sampling of this book's humor and advice: Never be embarrassed to look something up. Avoid scheduling an operation for the morning if you are leaving town in the afternoon. Don't throw instruments. If you must throw something, make it something disposable. Don't panic-even when it's obviously the most rational thing to do. If possible, leave the saphenous vein undivided in the leg until after heparin has been administered. In the event of a complication, the resident closest to the bed is assigned the blame.
