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 five stars is because there are only 29 pages per book and I find the cost somewhat prohibitive.

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.

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).

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!

Cute/cutesy illustrations. Some accurate facts, though that was clearly not the point of this pamphlet. To be educational as well as amusing, I would have liked to have seen a little more serious material. For example, why say that willow bark actually did have a useful pain reliever but not name it? And didn't most o us already know about that?
I did like the unifying conceit, which was to follow a very young apprentice surgeon through his initial introduction and various learning venues.
