Doc Hollywood: Diagnosing the Silver Screen's Most Imaginative Injuries

Discover how some of the silver screen’s most iconic action heroes would really fare after being shot, stabbed, and dropped off buildings in this witty look at the real science behind Hollywood injuries.

Have you ever wondered what would really happen if you dove through a glass window? Or what kind of state you would be in if you drove your car off a burning bridge? Or what you would look like after being dragged behind a truck?

All these questions and more will be addressed in Doc Hollywood: An In-Depth Diagnosis of the Silver Screen’s Most Imaginative Injuries. This fun gift book will see a professional medic assess the injuries endured by the characters in classic action movies, giving their diagnosis on what state these characters would actually be in if they lived in the real world. Each spread will ultimately give a verdict on whether they’d survive or be a goner.

Featuring colorful diagrams comparing the characters appearance in the film versus how they would actually look in the real world with the same injuries, Doc Hollywood is a clever and painfully funny gift for movie fans of all ages.
