Have you ever worried that you're doing a poor job of feeling poorly? Have you despaired that you're failing in your ailing? Have you felt you're missing out on TLC? You're not alone - it seems that most people these days just don't know how to make the most of being ill. In a society where there is a pill to cure more or less everything, this how-to guide will teach readers about the subtle art of being an invalid. It covers age-old remedies for common maladies, all but forgotten treatments, and the vital preparations that should be made to make being bed-ridden as comfortable and productive as possible. From the team that created the UK Booksellers Association Top 5 Christmas book, 101 Uses of a Dead Kindle, and Amazon bestseller, In Rude Health, The Art of Being Ill is at times practical, at times hilarious - but always an honest instruction manual for those who are truly terrible at being ill.
