Literary Nonfiction. Health. A second year of clinical tales from the Puswhisperer, Mark Crislip, an infectious disease specialist from Portland, OR. Dr. Crislip kills strep and staph, fights flu, and is always on the lookout for "zebras"—those unusual infections (and sometimes non-infections) that leave all the doctors guessing. Originally intended as a guide for studying for the Boards, these tales have been edited for a lay audience and provide hours of educational entertainment for anyone interested in infectious disease.
