I knew And Nothing but the Tooth: Still More Humorous (and Sometimes Touching) Tales from a Globe-Trotting Dentist's Storied Life by Dr. Carroll James was going to be interesting with a title like that. I was not disappointed. James has filled yet another book with humorous stories from his life experiences.
The reason I chose And Nothing but the Tooth was because of the title. I also like books that have a lot of short stories in them. I thought that James’ stories were fun and at times relatable. I totally related to Kate’s reason for not eating things that look at her. I also liked that his sarcastic attitude shone throughout all of his stories. He definitely has a flair for storytelling. It did make me wonder if the friends that he wrote about approved of their stories and his opinion of them. James has also lead an interesting life, having traveled all over the world. In fact my favorite story of his was when he was in Belize telling his patients to “die”. This is the reason dentists are scary! Although I have to admit that I have trouble pronouncing Spanish words too!
James has written a few other books about stories from his life, but this is the first of his that I have read. His other books also have interestingly named titles, which makes me want to read them too. If you like short stories and are not too afraid of dentists, then I recommend you read this book!
