Have you ever heard of Sawbones? The medical history podcast hosted by Dr. Sydnee McElroy and her husband Justin that currently holds a five-star rating based on 6,067 reviews? If you haven’t, please dust off your podcast app and give it a go, I personally recommend starting with their debut episode “Trepanation.” However if you prefer more visual media, you’re in luck, because Sawbones is going to be a book.
Due for release this October, The Sawbones Book: The Hilarious, Horrifying Road to Modern Medicine will be published by Simon & Schuster. The book will both re-tread topics covered on the podcast and introduce longtime listeners to new (and horrifying) content. Dr. McElroy’s sister Teylor Smirl is providing the illustrations, and boy are they something. Just get a load of the cover:

Although it won’t be out until October, you can pre-order it right this minute, and receive it in time for the Halloween season.
