Publisher's Summary

BBC Breakfast's Dr Rosemary Leonard shares more incredible stories from her career as a GP. 'I'm in the wrong job,' I said to our practice nurse, 'I should definitely have been a detective.' For Dr Rosemary Leonard, a day in her GP's surgery is full of unexplained ailments and mysteries to be solved.
From questions of paternity to apparently drug-resistant symptoms, these mysteries can sometimes take a while to get to the bottom of, especially when they are of a more intimate nature. In her second book about life in her London surgery, Dr Rosemary recalls some of her most puzzling cases...and their rather surprising explanations.

Maybe I wasn't her target audience

I dunno ...the doctor and I just didn't bond, as she came across a bit too self-impressed for me. Guess she realizes that "sex sells", since the first case is about a man's disappearing penis, with others focusing on pregnancy (three patients, same father), a "routine" pap smear that turned out more difficult than expected due to multiple piercings ("... like a scrapyard down there."), and one where a woman learns NOT to mix Dettol (US: Lysol, I think) in her bath water.

Not sorry I bought it, but not sorry the first book isn't available as an audio either. This was plenty. Afterwards, I watched a clip of Dr. Leonard, finding the narrator got the voice down nearly exactly.
