'Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired' - Mark Twain. Heartfelt words for starry-eyed lovers. When John Lennon wrote that 'all you need is love' back in 1967, perhaps he'd been struck by the lovebug himself.

Love is a gift, love is an adventure, love is a many-splendoured thing - love is what makes the world go round, so why not spread a little of the sweet stuff right now? Here's a book packed with quotations that will have you feeling the love in no time.

Have you ever wondered how long it takes to digest chewing gum? What hiccups are for? Whether it's safe to fly with breast implants? Taking in everything from the outrageous (yes, Hitler was addicted to crystal meth) to the eye-watering (such as the renowned surgeon who accidentally cut off his patients left testicle) to the downright disgusting (like the cure for toothache used by the Egyptians involving dead mouse paste), this book proves that medical science is not for the faint-hearted, lily-livered or weak-stomached.
