Reviews - What do customers think about Passing Gas and Getting Paid For It: The Musings of a Comic Anesthesiologist?
This is better than laughing gas! Jan 5, 2008
First off, you need to know that "passing gas" is medical slang for what anesthesiologists do in the operating room: administer vaporous medications to keep patients asleep and comfortable. I'm not sure how commonly known that is outside medical circles.
After battling death and disease all day, I appreciate a little levity. I got plenty with this volume. Despite the title, the humor is not sophomoric. "Passing Gas" makes a great gift for any physician, nurse, physical therapist, or anyone tangled up it the healthcare system, even hospitalized patients. If you like TV shows such as "Scrubs" and "MASH," you'll love this book.

Hilarious Inside Dope Sep 14, 2007
Want a laugh a minute at your doctor's expense? Then read Passing Gas and Getting Paid for It, a wacky take-off on doctoring by an anesthesiologist who knows how to poke fun at himself and his profession. Borsky has an ear for visual comedy, hyperbole, and slapstick humor with a touch of true compassion for patients and clueless interns thrown in the mix. A Dave Barry-esque romp, complete with a fundraising doc dressed as a polyp. No one could make this up.
