"Dr. Robert Buckman is well known on both sides of the Atlantic as a television presenter of medical topics, a best-selling author, a cancer physician and ( occasionally) an entertainer. In this unusual autobiography, he tells the story of his life so far: as an exceptionally small child, a young physican, a performer (appearing on stage with the Monty Python crew), columnist and author. What m a k e s t h is book even more intriguing is that he has also been a patient - suffering a near-fatal auto-immune disease in 1979 and an inflammation of the spinal cord ten years later which has left him partially paralyzed. In these pages, Dr. B uc km an d ea l s un flinchingly with medicine, health, theatre, sex, love, television, alcohol, money, telephones, flatulence, filing systems and a few other minor details of modern life. 'Not Dead Yet' is often funny, sometimes hilarious, occasio nal ly ser iou s a nd a lwa ys engaging." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very minor rubbing. Near Fine/Near Fine.
