7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By J. Grufman on March 7, 2007
Format: Paperback
We have several of the "You Wouldn't Want to..." series which we used to support our Medieval History as well as some science studies for school. The books are visually appealing for students of all ages with humorous and yes, gross artwork in abundance to illustrate the facts and fallacies presented. There's actually quite a bit of information provided within each title. My 13 year old son still enjoys reading these.

The only reason I didn't give this [..]is because there are only 29 pages per book and I find the cost somewhat prohibitive.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on February 11, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is the grossest book I have ever read and you get all the gross facts with it and this is a good book because you get gross facts. It tells you about the battlefield and how they almost never wash there blades, they were to be decorative not to cut off limbs. This kind of book is great for book shares. Try reading other books in this series and once you start, you can't stop.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Zheljko Stanimirovic on January 19, 2004
Format: School & Library Binding
This picturebook is aimed at primary elementary students, and shows the gory life of a 16th century medical staff. It has many yucky details, which the kids love, and is interesting for comparisons of how much the medicine advanced since that age. The facial expressions are real fun, especially all the teeth-clenching of patients faced with primitive medical tools (which seem to inflict more pain than cure).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Love this series. This is the second book I have read in the series and is a great catalyst that can lead to many discussions for them to learn the how's and why's that shaped our present world. Kids love guts and gore, and with this book, the whole 16th century becomes way more interesting. The illustrations are humorous and the book covers a lot of ground. It also serves to remind students how lucky we are to be in this age and not one of the more barbaric ones. Great teaching tool!

By M. Massey on November 2, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While much of the content is gross, it is factual. My children love reading about history in this format and retain most of the information after one reading. This book in the series follows a Barber Surgeon from apprenticeship to death, while learning about the different diseases, illnesses, and cures of the 16th century. If your child is squeamish, this isn't really a book for them since it does cover leeches, bloodletting, amputation, etc.
