Readers who enjoyed the deft humor and the delightful fun provided by the author's "Doctor in the House" will not be disappointed in "Doctor at Sea," which is an equally amusing account about medical practice on board a cargo vessel plying between Liverpool and Rio. Even though the author's nautical education turned out to be more social than medical, reading about his adventures will be a most pleasant way to spend a relaxed evening at home.
