Historic top-level information! 31 July 2000
By Willems JHBM - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a unique and very well written book on high-altitude. The history chapters are complete and privide the reader with an exellent oveview of many interesting discoveries. You will not find historical information of this quality elsewhere. The scientific base is strong, and the detailed descriptions of some important medical experiments are of great use. I used the book as background source while writing a dutch booklet on high altitude disease, and found it of great use. Thank you, John West!
