Format: Paperback
This book is also available under the title "Why we get sick". I, like Richard Dawkins who greatly praises this book, get sick of publishers mucking around with titles.
The book's reviews under the other title should tell you all that you need to know.Why We Get Sick

Format: Paperback
If you are curious as to why things happen, as well as just how, then you will be likely to find this book a very interesting and informative read. It proposes evolutionary explanations for why we get sick and why we get the symptoms we do - including how some symptoms that cause us discomfort can also have beneficial/protective purpose.

The book is also well written (so its entertaining rather than being dull to read) and you don't need to have a scientific background to enjoy it. Apparently its also under the title of 'Why we get sick', so its worth looking at those reviews too.

Still in the process of reading. Enjoying immensly. I saw this recomended by Dawkins. If you like the selfish gene etc this is great (and I think an easier read for the layman like me)

HASH(0x92c20b04) out of 5 stars Brain Bendingly Fascinating 20 Nov. 2006
By Farzana Mohamedbhai - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Usually books of this nature send me to sleep, but this was different, it did the opposite. 'Evolution and Healing' deals with the idea of evolution, but specifically applying to a medical setting, asking such pertinent questions as 'Why do we Die?'. With an narrative more suited to lecture than a lenghtly scientific tome it explains with clarity and coherence an argument that you cannot fail to understand. Buy now and never regret.
