5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest coffee table book EVER June 4 2008
By J. T. Stern - Published on Amazon.com
I had this book out when family was over and everyone was checking it out. Basically, you look up your symptom (headache, whatever) and the book tells you what terrible disease you're dying from. I don't understand the reviewer complaining about the medical advice -- um, hello, it's a HUMOR BOOK! And my two sisters are nurses and they thought everything was hilarious. It looks legit to me! (And I watch Grey's Anatomy and House, so I am clearly an expert.) Seriously, this book is probably used by the writers of those TV shows because just like on the show, the most innocent symptoms indicate the most horrible killer disease ever. Just don't give it to your hypochondriac elderly aunt or anything. Also beware: My kids use it as a way to get out of school..hey, maybe I should try it for work..."Oh, my ribs hurt, I have costochondritis!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Morbidly funny May 14 2008
By Aileen - Published on Amazon.com
Perfect book for anyone who's never satisfied with the common cold. I especially like the "You Eat, You Suffer" section on foodborne illnesses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Want to give this to sooooo many people I know May 12 2008
By Thea S. Klapwald - Published on Amazon.com
I have so many friends who are constantly sending me those crazy emails telling me what might kill me next and I'm going to give each and every one of them this book. I love the Knock Knock style and pace, the amount of irreverence combined with knowledge. I always feel smarter but somewhat humbled as well after I read a Knock Knock piece. Keep 'em coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I know I have the cancer... June 11 2008
By Mera - Published on Amazon.com
That strange chest pain (which I've been complaining about but doing nothing about for a week)? Yeah, turns out I probably have the cancer ... or atleast the costochondritis. My friend bought me this book because, quote, she "couldn't help it-you have issues." But at least now I have the fancy names to back up my claims ... I just wanted to shout out to others who need a vocab of scientific sounding names, to legitimize their claims of waning mortality of course, that this is the book for you. Way easier than the inter-web!

4.0 out of 5 stars great for a light-hearted laugh May 12 2008
By Sierra Mist - Published on Amazon.com
great book as a gift to the hypochondriac in the family and/or circle of friends. should not be taken too seriously as it is clear the book is meant to make people laugh so if your hypochondriac mom or best friend is a little sensitive, then this may not be the book for her/him.

but for anyone with a sense of humor...it is a fun read.
