    Gene Weingarten is a columnist at The Washington Post and previously worked at the Detroit Free Press, the National Law Journal, and as editor of The Miami Herald's Tropic Magazine. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland.
    When every hiccup sounds like the call of doom, each stomach pang hints at incipient cancer, and a headache means it's time to firm up your last will and testament,The Hypochondriac's Guide to Life. And Death. provides just the relief you need. Gene Weingarten has spent his whole life immersed in the eclectic details of bizarre symptoms, self-diagnosing every minor ache as a potentially deadly disease. Weingarten examines:
    • The mind of a hypochondriac
    • How your doctor can kill you
    • Ulcers and other visceral fears
    • The snaps, crackles, and pops of your body that spell disaster
    • Things that can take an eye out
    • Interpreting DocSpeak

    Blending the neurotic anxieties of Woody Allen, the folksiness of Garrison Keillor, and the absurdist vision of Dave Barry, Gene Weingarten conjures up a hilarious prescription for the hypochondriac that lurks inside all of us.
