This review is from: Extremes: Life, Death and the Limits of the Human Body (Hardcover)
Having a similar childhood dream of flying in space with Dr Fong, reading the book is much like discovering the career I did not choose but wish I had. Like Dr Fong I grew up in a Cantonese family emigrated to the west. Unlike Dr Fong I didn't possess the capacity to study science of living after learning the science of the dead. After reading the book I really wish I had fought for the chance to study it.
Dr Fong's experience in presenting medical knowledge in understandable and personable fashion makes the book very interesting and inspiring. The book brilliantly relates medical science with real life cases and product is an easy to read medical book for the public with thrilling stories to make for exciting reading. After reading the book I crave for similar reading to expand my horizon.
