Sue Baker's view...

Who’d be a doctor – step outside the surgery and someone is sure to buttonhole you, asking the most intimate questions. For the sake of doctors everywhere, Christian Jessen has written a book in Q & A format giving the answers to those most commonly asked questions. He asks why people don’t ask their own doctor, and many of the problems he encounters here are general worries, overall questions, hard to ask in a rushed consultation with the doctor. More intimate questions perhaps also hard to ask and his book does a great service in informing and putting minds at rest.

Synopsis

Can I Just Ask? The 250+ Curious Questions That Off-Duty Doctors Are Most Often Asked by Christian Jessen

Dr Christian Jessen, the unshockable presenter of the hit television shows, Embarassing Bodies and Supersize Vs Superskinny , is always being tackled by strangers wanting answers to their most private medical questions. Like all doctors, Dr Christian finds people sidling up to him with their questions at parties, on trains, and even in the street. So why don't people ask their own doctors these questions in the more formal setting of the medical surgery? And what are the most common questions? Can I Just Ask? provides the answers in a fun and informative book that includes: urban health myths busted; advice for common problems we don't like to talk about; specific sections for male/female health issues, curious facts, sex, diet, medicines, fitness, and more; and plenty of surprising facts and figures to help trivia-hungry readers better understand the mysterious workings of their bodies. Sometimes humorous, often surprising and always informative, this book will answer all your questions, whether you have a worrying health dilemma or just a curious mind!
