Summary

Running a railway is a complex business beset with drama. The operation of heavy equipment at speed, twenty-four hours a day, across the full length of the country and using extremely technical signaling, track and mechanical engineering is no mean feat and throws up a constant stream of challenges. Fortunately, the highly professional railway staff are ready to deal with these daily obstacles using their expertise, dedication and, as is so often required, a sense of humour. Here Geoff Body and his son Ian have collated a selection of entertaining and revealing anecdotes that illustrate just how unexpected working on the railways can be.

    If youre medically curious, then youll love the treasure trove of 
    information that Dr. Larry Romane shares in this little book. 
     
    This longtime ER doctor has always been surprised at how little people know about medical matters, but he knows that knowledge can be challenging to grasp when doctors call a heart attack an acute myocardial infarction and a simple toothache an anaerobic gingival abscess 
    Romane cuts through that jargon to answer questions such as: 
    
    Why is everyone getting diabetes? 
    Are brand name medicines safer than generic versions? 
    Do you need antibiotics for upper respiratory infections?
     
    
     
    He also shares valuable insights, such as: A pound of fat contains about 3,500 caloriesso cutting 100 calories every day for a year would take off about ten pounds; X-rays may cause future DNA changes in a cell, leading to cancer decades in the future; and only about five percent of dog bites get infected versus sixty percent of cat bitesanother reason a dog is mans best friend. 
    
     
    Youll be surprised by all the medical information you dont know  some of it quite useful  in R U Medically Curious?
