Press Reviews

Praise for The art of being ill: "...the information therein, while lighthearted, is also 'pragmatic and sound': from advice on how best to treat minor illnesses and ailments, how to prepare for a day on crutches (a bumbag comes highly recommended), convalescence etiquette ('Don't show your visitors anything that has come out of your body, from any orifice'), to a whole section 'In Praise of Vinegar' (really the uses are surprisingly endless)."
