Format: Paperback
A.& C. of M. is a fantastic book indeed with it's "ancient" coverage of medical anomilies in one place!! It also had a brief cameo in the movie "The Breakfast Club." However this version of the book (Blue Unicorn Press) has none of the original pictures of which there were over 100 in the original version (late 1800's) and in the reprints during the mid to late 20th century. Unless you only want text, this version may not be for you.

As of today there are 5 Kindle versions of this book for sale on Amazon. I bought 3 of them, and none of the 3 I bought included the illustrations. Still a great read, but the original version of this book has interesting drawings and photos. Too bad, I would have loved to have the complete book on my Kindle.

As an RN, I'm interested in all things medical. I also probably have a morbid curiosity of anomalies. On top of that, I enjoy historical readings. The only drawback to this book is that the illustrations are missing. Otherwise, a very worthwhile read!

I've always been into odd things ever since I was a child. I recently got a Kindle for Christmas so I was browsing around the free books because hey, why not? I came across this book and decided to give it a try. I'm only in the first chapter but it's really great and engaging. Non of these "cases" however have been backed by the actual documents. It's more like, "In China there was a documented case of (whatever)". Sometimes the doctor will be named but that's about it. Overall interesting read. I recommend it for anyone who's into odd medical conditions.

My 1st copy came from a garage sale. Unusual books interest me. You can travel the world in books and read about things you will never see in person. I bought a second copy for a physican's assistant (my son) who had better read it because if he dosen't , I will indian give the book to my doctor from India that wants it.
