237 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w photographs. "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 makes this 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. Buckman deals unflinchingly 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, occasionally serious and always engaging." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very minor rubbing.
