Penis Thieves, Voodoo Death, and the Search for the Meaning of the World's Strangest Syndromes

What is a book you LOVE that's not very well known? I'll go first. This fascinating book presents some provocative ideas on illness and culture. It makes you question who you are and why you feel the way you do. Now you: What's a great book that others might not have heard of?      fuente
@BullandBaird this is one of the most interesting books I've read in a long time (so of course I had to tie it into the stock mkt):      fuente
