We've all had "one of those days." Yet, even under the most stressful conditions, humor seems to find its way through-at times it's even sharper than your surgical instruments!

Dr. Waters was asked by hundreds of readers of his first book, A Heart Surgeon's Little Instruction Book to create a similar work for all surgical specialties. He responded to the request by assembling a stunning collection of the best one-liners from hundreds of colleagues around the world.

Here's a sampling of this book's humor and advice:

  • Recognize when a referral is just someone wanting his or her problem to become your problem.
  • Never let a published article stand in the way of common sense.
  • Your percentages of body fat and moral fiber should never approximate each other.
  • Be wary of colleagues who are more conversant with their billings than they are with their clinical results.
  • Start each case with a clear conscience and an empty bladder.
